Who are following civilera blogs know that we are having a series of blogs on the topic of crack prevention.This topic of crack control is useful for all civil engineers irrespective of their work nature. Site engineers can discuss the site and construction aspects. Structural Design Engineers can focus on Foundation design related aswell as on construction aspects that will help crack prevention or crack reduction. Infact site engineering and structural engineering are inseparable.A site engineer with good structural design basics can perform really well as most site decisions are driven by structural related points.
In this Civilera Forum space, you can discuss about Soil and Foundation movement and the cracks occuring due to that,good practices,what should be avoided,what should be adopted and every thing about crack formation due to the soil movement,mitigation in design stage to construction stage.
