ENVIRONMENT EFFECT ON THERMAL VARIATIONS AN SHRINKAGE OF LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE STRUCTURES

THE EFFECT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS ON THE DESIGN FOR TEMPERATURE AND SHRINKAGE STRESSES OF REINFORCED LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE STRUCTURES IN THE US IS PRESENTED THE RANGE OF TEMPERATURE VARIATION, RELATIVE HUMIDITY, DIMENSIONS AND SHAPE OF MEMBERS, PERCENTAGE OF LONGITUDINAL STEEL, CONCRETE MIX, COEFFICIENT OF THERMAL EXPANSION AND SHRINKAGE COEFFICIENT OF LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE HAVE BEEN STUDIED. DESIGN CONDITIONS FOR THERMAL VARIATIONS AND SHRINKAGE IN 135 LOCALITIES THROUGHOUT THE US ARE GIVEN IN THE FORM OF A TABLE. A DESIGN EXAMPLE IS INCLUDED TO ILLUSTRATE THE USE OF THE TABLE. /AUTHOR/
