CREEP AND SHRINKAGE FROM MANUFACTURED FINE HAWAIIAN AGGREGATE CONCRETES

The results from experimental studies on uniaxially loaded and stress-free concrete cylinders are reported. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effects of manufactured sand on the creep and shrinkage behavior of Hawaiian aggregate concretes. It was found that the creep and shrinkage from the manufactured sand were similar to that from concretes cast with beach sand. The compressive strength versus age curve of manufactured fine Hawaiian aggregate concretes was similar to beach sand concrete. The values of ultimate shrinkage strains and ultimate creep strains are reported. Mathematical expressions for predicting creep and shrinkage are reported.
