RELATION BETWEEN CREEP AND INCREASE IN STRENGTH AND HYDRATION FROM TIME OF LOAD APPLICATION ONWARDS

A REVIEW OF LITERATURE HAVING A BEARING ON THE PROBLEM OF CREEP IN CONCRETE LEADS TO THE CONCLUSIONS THAT /1/ IT IS POSSIBLE TO PREDICT LONG-TERM CREEP OF STRUCTURES FROM SHORT -TERM LABORATORY TESTS. A.M. NEVILLES STRESS-STRENGTH RATIO SERVES AS A USEFUL AND INFORMATIVE INDEX /2/ IT IS POSSIBLE THAT CREEP, LIKE STRENGTH IS A FUNCTION OF HYDRATION AND THE RELATIVE AMOUNT OF UNFILLED GEL SPACE /3/ THE EXACT MECHANISM OF CREEP HAS NOT BEEN FULLY UNDERSTOOD BUT IT IS APPARENT THAT CREEP DEPENDS LARGELY ON THE GROSSER STRUCTURE OF COLLOIDAL DIMENSIONS OF CONCRETE AND ONLY INDIRECTLY ON THE CHEMICAL CONSTITUTION. /RRL/
