Plastic Shrinkage Cracking Spreadsheet to calculate evaporation rates of bleed water from concrete surfaces

Spreadsheet for calculating risk of Plastic Shrinkage Cracking from Bleed Water Evaporation Rates

This document is a simple Excel spreadsheet which allows the user to input Air Temperature, Concrete Temperature, Relative Humidity & Wind Velocity to determine the Bleed Water Evaporation Rate.

The formulae, developed by P Uno, are based on the well known ACI Bleed Water Evaporation Nomograph.
