This test method covers the laboratory determination of the age at cracking and induced tensile stress characteristics of mortar or concrete specimens under restrained shrinkage. The procedure can be used to determine the effects of variations in the proportions and material properties of mortar or concrete on cracking due to both drying shrinkage and deformations caused by autogenous shrinkage and heat of hydration. A sample of freshly mixed mortar or concrete is compacted in a circular mold around an instrumented steel ring.

The compressive strain developed in the steel ring caused by shrinkage of the mortar or concrete specimen is measured with 4 strain gages from the time of casting. Cracking of the test specimen is indicated by a sudden decrease in the steel ring strain. The age at cracking and the rate of tensile stress development in the test specimen are indicators of the materials resistance to cracking under restrained shrinkage cited from the standard.

Steel ring strain vs. The specimen is cracking after 6.

Shrinkage Ring – Measuring the Restrained Shrinkage

The data of up to 5 rings are digitally transferred to the data-logger. A data-logger supplied with the system records strain gage data and store it in the logger as standard ASCII files. The logger has a network interface Ethernet.

So you can easily integrate it into local intranet. With a standard web-browser software you can readout the data and visualize it.
