Plastic cracking Concrete Construction Magazine

This term refers to cracking which occurs while the concrete is still in a plastic state. The phenomenon is most common in hot, dry climates and can usually be attributed to settlement of the mix in the form or over-rapid drying. Depending on the mix proportions, any water added in excess of that needed for hydration of the cement may bleed ...
