The report gives results of a study to determine the causes of cracking in slab-on-grade construction, particularly for single-family residential structures in Florida, and to recommend a foundation barrier construction standard to minimize such cracking. The report is one of a series of five reports which present recommended building construction standards developed by the Florida Radon Research Program in accordance with Section 404.056, Florida Statutes. The standards are designed to decrease exposure to indoor radon concentrations in newly constructed buildings.
