Finite element model(FEM) is developed and implemented, to simulate<br>and analyses the early age restrained cracking behavior due to drying shrinkage. The Simulation focus on the<br>evaluation of the impact of restrained edge distance on early age cracking due to deformation resulting from<br>drying shrinkage. The FEM analysis Model deals with phenomena of temperature, humidity exchange, thermal<br>diffusion, and mechanical behavior which can take a place at the three first days followed the concrete casting,<br>to evaluate the diameter, distance effects on the early age crack. The effect of the diameter of the restricted<br>steel ring was studied on the diameter of the concrete and the spacing between them. The results were compared<br>with the results of the experiments discussed in the published literature; it was found that there is an excellent<br>agreement for all the performed analysis.<br><br></p>}, number={63}, journal={GEOMATE Journal}, author={Maha.
