COEFFICIENT OF THERMAL EXPANSION & TENSILE STRAIN CAPACITY

The aggregate used in the concrete mix crushed limrstone. Comparing the BS8110 values
with CIRIA 91 in the table below suggests the following values.
 = 10 x 10-6
tsc = 180 x 10-6
Aggregate Type Coefficient of Thermal Tensile Strain
-6 -6
BS8110 Part 2 Expansion,  (x10 ) Capacity, tsc (x10 )
Tbl 3.2 BS8110 Limestone 8.0 2 x 90 = 180 **
CIRIA 91 Tbl 1 CIRIA Sandstone 9.2 - 13.3 ~
CIRIA Limestone 4.3 - 10.3 ~  = 10 x 10-6
-6
CIRIA 91 Tbl 8 CIRIA Crushed Rock ~ 180 tsc = 180 x 10

** Designer's Note: BS8110 value already includes tsc/2 factor.
