TIME-DEPENDENT DEFORMATIONS OF CONCRETE

RESEARCH EFFORTS ON A MISSOURI COOPERATIVE HIGHWAY RESEARCH PROJECT INITIATED IN 1959 TO STUDY THE EFFECTS OF CREEP AND SHRINKAGE ON THE DEFLECTION OF REINFORCED CONCRETE BRIDGES ARE SUMMARIZED. THE RESULTS OF THE EXPERIMENTAL PHASE ARE RECOUNTED AND COMPARED WITH THEORIES AND OBSERVATIONS OF OTHER RESEARCHERS. METHODS OF ANALYSIS FOR PREDICTING THE STRUCTURAL BEHAVIOR OF PLAIN AND REINFORCED CONCRETE MEMBERS BASED ON ASSUMED LOAD HISTORY AND ELASTIC AND TIME-DEPENDENT PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE ARE ALSO PRESENTED. DESIGN RECOMMENDATIONS ARE SUMMARIZED FOR ESTIMATING MATERIAL PROPERTIES AND FOR CALCULATING TIME- DEPENDENT STRESSES AND STRAINS IN REINFORCED CONCRETE BEAMS AND COLUMNS. /AUTHOR/
