Shrinkage and Creep of Concrete

This volume contains papers presented during American Concrete Institute (ACI) Spring 2005 Convention. Papers are presented to evaluate models for predicting shrinkage and creep. Several papers provide a field assessment of creep and shrinkage in concrete structures and provide an explanation of how field data should be collected and how the data can be used to refine predictive models. Other papers deal with an improved understanding of early age tensile stress development, including demonstrating the measurement of creep and stress development. One paper presents experimental results to quantify differential drying and thermal deflections in slabs. The papers also recognize that modern concretes are now no longer simple mixtures of water, cement, and aggregate. The volume includes significant contributions by many leading research and practicing engineers in the field of shrinkage and creep. The descriptions of field problems and the assessment of the accuracy of predictive models may assist practicing engineers.
