SUMMARY OF THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE SYMPOSIUM ON CREEP, SHRINKAGE AND TEMPERATURE, NEW YORK, APRIL, 1970.

Nine designers were invited either to discuss structures in which the effects of creep, shrinkage or temperature had produced distress, or to establish design procedures for preventing it. An ACI Committee presented available pertinent research data. The papers, a list of which is given in the appendix, justified the conclusion that, for reinforced concrete, sufficient data and adequate design methods are now available to permit safe efficient design. /TRRL/
