The creep of clay cement under steady tensile stress

In view of the problems that are caused by unsuitable cracking in soil cement pavements, attempts have been made to estimate the shrinkage stresses which develop in them. From accurate shrinkage stress estimates it is hoped that the crack pattern can be predicted and adequately controlled. One factor which could influence these shrinkage stresses is the time dependent strain of the material under applied tensile stresses. In this work the author has attempted to measure the tensile creep in a clay cement. The results are compared with others that were obtained by inference from compression tests (a).
