Content DescriptionThis report reviews the methods for predicting creep, shrinkage and temperature effects in concrete structures. It presents the designer with a unified and digested approach to the problem of volume changes in concrete. The individual chapters have been written in such a way that they can be used almost independently from the rest of the report. The report is generally consistent with ACI 318 and includes material indicated in the Code, but not specifically defined therein. Keywords: beams (supports); buckling; camber; composite construction (concrete to concrete); compressive strength; concretes; concrete slabs; cracking (frao turing); creep properties; curing; deflection; flat concrete plates; flexural strength; girders; lightweight-aggregate concretes; modulus of elasticity; moments of inertia;precast concrete; prestressed concrete: prestress loss; reinforced concrete: shoring; shrinkage; strains; stress relaxation; structural design; temperature; thermal expansion; two-way slabs: volume change; warpage.
