Crack-free concrete: an understanding of creep
2011 (English)In: Nordic Concrete Research: Proceedings of the XXI Nordic Concrete Symposium, Hämeenlinna, Finland 2011, Oslo: The Nordic Concrete Federation , 2011, 477-480 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
A durable structure of concrete is achieved when no cracking occurs during the young ages of the hardening process. Therefore, it’s of importance to address shrinkage and creep correctly. Drying is the primary source of shrinkage, and the time development in shrinkage is an effect of the balance between drying and creep. Therefore, creep is to be measured on sealed and non-sealed specimens in order to investigate the nature of drying creep. Measurements will be performed for loading ages up to 1 year. These experimental data will be used to create accurate models, including both short and long term effects.
