strange concrete failure


Recommended Posts

This looked strange to me, this concrete failed in two relatively small spots at the surface, and has some cracking connecting the spalled/broken concrete. This driveway has radiant heat, I suspect a connection between the radiant heat and this broken concrete.

Anyone seen what causes this?

I noticed that cracks converge at those two spots. This could be caused by shrinkage or expansion if the concrete was poured tight to an object like a pipe manifold, large stone or old broken piece of concrete, etc.
