Plastic Cracking of Concrete

2.1 PLASTIC SETTLEMENT CRACKS: Fresh concrete when placed in deep formwork such as that of column or wall has a tendency to settle or subside. If this settlement is restrained due to obstructions like steel bars or large aggregates it causes short horizontal cracks and the subsidence due to reduction in volume is termed as plastic settlement cracks.

Construction defect problems and how to fix them

 · Construction defect is basically divided into two main majors, structural and nonstructural. First, the structural defect is any defect in an auxiliary component that has a negative effect on other parts of the building and threatening the safety of the facility. They can be caused by structural, mechanical, electrical or environmental factors.
