- Coarse aggregate has a large influence on drying shrinkage which is one of the major causes of cracking in concrete structures. The stiffer an aggregate, the lower is the drying shinkage of concrete. Since it is not possible to alter the stiffness characteristic of an aggregate, a practical method of minimizing cracking of concrete when high-absorption or low-modulus aggregates must be used can be the application of a shrinkage-compensating cement in combination with these aggregates of marginal quality.
