BART AERIAL STRUCTURES, CREEP AND SHRINKAGE CONTROL PART II. LABORATORY TESTING AND FIELD PERFORMANCE
The reliability of concrete testing has long been questioned. Test procedures for shrinkage and creep characteristics are usually too time-consuming and expensive to apply to field applications. The field performance of the BART aerial structures provides evidence that the tests developed for BART were effective in solving these problems.
