COMPARISON OF CONCRETE CREEP STRAINS DUE TO BENDING AND AXIAL COMPRESSION. SECOND NATIONAL STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING CONFERENCE, ADELAIDE, 3-5 OCTOBER 1990; PREPRINTS OF PAPERS

An experimental investigation has been carried out to investigate the relationship between concrete creep strains due to bending and creep strains due to axial compression. Specimens of rectangular cross-section were loaded eccentrically to produce creep strains associated with axial compression and bending about the major and minor principal axes of the section. Thus 3 correlated creep strain components were measured for each specimen. The 3 creep strain components were related to common material properties and external environmental conditions, but they were also related to non-uniform internal moisture conditions associated with moisture diffusion. The experimental results showed significant differences between the creep strain components, apparently due to drying creep effects. For the covering entry of the conference see IRRD 831067.
