CREEP OF OIL-SATURATED CONCRETE

Creep of oil-saturated concrete beams loaded in flexure has been measured for 13 years. The results indicate that the creep mechanism of oil-saturated concrete is different from the creep mechanism of concrete loaded in water or air. Creep continues at an almost constant rate after 13 years, probably due to partial replacement of absorbed water by hydrocarbon molecules in the cement gel structure. /Author/
