FACTORS AFFECTING VOLUME CHANGES IN CONCRETE AND THEIR SIGNIFICANCE IN DESIGN

A COMMITTEE REPORT IS PRESENTED ON THE FACTORS AFFECTING THE VOLUME CHANGES OF CONCRETE, AND THEIR SIGNIFICANCE IN THE DESIGN OF CONCRETE MIXTURES, AND THE STRUCTURES IN WHICH THE CONCRETE WILL BE USED. THE EXISTING INFORMATION IS REVIEWED AND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE RESULTS OF TESTS IS ANALYZED. THE EFFECTS OF CEMENT, PROPORTIONS, CONSISTENCY, CURING, AGE, WATER CONTENT, TEMPERATURE, AGGREGATES, ADMIXTURES, AND COMBINED STRESSES UPON VOLUME CHANGES DUE TO STRESS AND TO CAUSES OTHER THAN STRESS ARE DISCUSSED IN DETAIL. IMPORTANT FACTORS IN NEED OF ADDITIONAL RESEARCH ARE: RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MODULUS OF ELASTICITY OF CONCRETE AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AGGREGATES, PLASTIC FLOW OF CONCRETE, AND THERMAL PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE. /AUTHOR/
