VOLUME CHANGE AND CREEP IN CONCRETE.

VOLUME CHANGE AND CREEP OF MATERIALS CAN BE IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS IN DESIGN OR CONSTRUCTION, AND CAN BEST BE DEALT WITH THROUGH IMPROVED UNDERSTANDING OF THE FACTORS CAUSING SUCH BEHAVIOR. CONCRETE, LIKE MANY OTHER MATERIALS USED IN BUILDING, HAS A COMPLEX PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL STRUCTURE THAT IS NOT YET COMPLETELY UNDERSTOOD. IT IS THROUGH APPRECIATION OF WHAT IS KNOWN AND OF THE POSSIBLE INTERACTIONS INVOLVED THAT IMPROVED DESIGN AND PRACTICE WILL DEVELOP. CAUSES AND EFFECTS OF BLEEDING, SHRINKAGE, AND CREEP IN CONCRETE ARE DESCRIBED AND WAYS OF KEEPING THE VOLUME CHANGE AND CREEP TO A MINIMUM ARE SUGGESTED. /CGRA/
