No ivory is not cracked, this term indicates that in this world nothing is perfect, including concrete. There are two types of cracks that occur in concrete: Crack Concrete During Preparation and Cracking of Concrete After Making. At least, there are some areas of concrete that tend to crack, visit our website to fix slab foundation.
1. Cracked concrete beams
Cracks of structures on the beams have a vertical or diagonal pattern, in addition, there are also patterns of hair fractures. Cracked concrete beams can be categorized into cracked structures consisting of bending cracks having vertical patterns usually caused by loads that exceed the beam capability and shear fractures that have diagonal/oblique patterns commonly occurring after the presence of flexible fractures having vertical patterns. Cracked shear can also occur if the beam is exposed to seismic forces. In addition, the beam crack can be caused by less than perfect process. Small cracks or cracked hair, much of it caused by environmental influences. Generally occurs because the beam is exposed to sunlight and rain.
– For the concrete beam under which there is a wall, can be made additional columns / additional poles around the cracks. The function of this column is to support the beam and help channel the load down / the foundation.
– For concrete beams underneath it is not possible to provide additional columns, first given the injection of epoxy on the crack, then enlarged dimension beam with external reinforcement.
– For small cracks, just fill with plastering. The goal is that iron reinforcement is not directly related to the outside air that can cause rust
2. Cracked Concrete Walls / Floor
The cracks on the walls are mostly due to the lack of quality concrete basement walls. The quality of concrete is expressed by K units (eg K-125, K-175, K-250 and so on). For massively built houses this kind of damage is commonly encountered. Cracks on the floor due to an uplift style that exceeds the capacity of the basement floor. The existence of ground movement under the basement floor, resulting in cracks in the walls and basement floors. This may also result in tearing of the water stop (groundwater retaining rubber).
– Prepare a special chemical fluid that is fast and fast (epoxy), then inject/grouting at the crack area.
– For a torn water stop it should be replaced with a new one.
