concrete
 the cornerstone of modernity

concrete is ubiquitous in global construction. It shapes vital infrastructure, from housing to transportation systems. Preserving it in good shape is what guarantees our safety and the value of many of our most important assets.

one symptom, many causes

cracks are a common symptom of structural distress. Monitoring them help reveal their cause and better plan building maintenance. Crack causes include:

elastic deformation

Structural components like walls and beams undergo elastic deformation due to load, causing cracks.

 settlement

of soil

Differential settlement or movement in the soil beneath a structure can cause cracks.

chemical permeability

Sulphate attacks on cement products or corrosion of reinforcement in concrete may result in cracking.

structural

design flaws

Bad design or construction can result in insufficient reinforcement and increased stress concentration.
