A REVIEW OF CONCRETE MATERIAL PROPERTIES AND METHODS OF ASSESSING CREEP AND SHRINKAGE EFFECTS

This paper reviews NRB sponsored research work on concrete material properties and on methods of assessing creep and and shrinkage effects. The results from various experimental projects are briefly described and references are given to where more detailed reports or information can be obtained. A copy of a Fenwick paper, which describes the general effects of creep and shrinkage and how an engineer might deal with these, is given in Appendix 1. (Author)
