THE SUBJECTS COVERED DEAL IN CREEP BEHAVIOR OF CONCRETE, PLAIN OR REINFORCED CONCRETE, WITH THE MECHANISM OF CREEP, OR WITH THE DESIGN PROBLEMS ARISING FROM CREEP.

SOME OF THE INFLUENCES ON CREEP WHICH HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED WITH REASONABLE ACCURACY INCLUDE: THE TYPE OF CEMENT, CEMENT PASTE CONTENT OF THE MIX, AMOUNT OF EVAPORABLE WATER AND THE EXTENT OF DRYING, STRENGTH OF CONCRETE AT THE TIME OF APPLICATION OF LOAD AND THE SUBSEQUENT CHANGE IN STRENGTH, AND SIZE OF THE LOADED MEMBER.
