Assalam o alaikum dear friends,
It is quite basic level question but I am wondering how steel resists temperature and shrinkage cracks? Co-efficient of Thermal expansion for both steel and concrete is nearly same. Which shows if concrete contracts at an amount steel would also contracts at the same amount. So I m wonder which exactly phenomenon is involved in resisting shrinkage cracks?
Thanks in advance.
