In response to comments upon their original paper, the authors agree that stress relaxation due to creep fracture should be revealed for a complete understanding of the problem. They disagree with the result that the maximum shrinkage stress equals 0.7 times the tensile strength, since this conclusion would lead one to assume that the soil-cement cannot crack due to shrinkage stress, which contradicts the experimental findings. Several editorial corrections are listed which should be made to the original paper.
