ACI MANUAL OF CONCRETE PRACTICE 1991. PART 1. MATERIALS AND GENERAL PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE. STANDARD PRACTICE FOR THE USE OF SHRINKAGE-COMPENSATING CONCRETE
Shrinkage-compensating concrete is used extensively in various types of construction to eliminate or minimize cracking caused by drying shrinkage. Although its characteristics are in most respects similar to those of portland cement concrete, the materials, selecting of proportions, placement, and curing msut be such that sufficient expansion is obtained to compensate for subsequent drying shrinkage. This recommended practice sets forth the criteria and practices necessary to insure that expansion occurs at the time and in the amount required. In addition to a discussion of the basic principles, methods and details are given covering structural design, concrete mix proportioning, placement, finishing, and curing.
