Test results are presented of the creep, strength, elasticity and creep recovery of mass concrete which was tested in the temperature range of 35-205 F and under stress-strength ratios of 10-70 percent. Creep was enhanced by temperature but strength, elasticity and creep recovery were independent of its effects. The relation of creep to stress-strength ratio in the range of 10-70 percent was linear. Discussion of a hypothesis of the creep mechanism is also presented.
Compressive strength tests were conducted on 3 x 6 in. (735 x 15 cm) cylindrical specimens heated for short duration to temperatures of 200 to 1600F (93 to 871C).

Results of elevated temperature tests on a one-quarter scale prestressed concrete reactor vessel (PCRV) model are reported. The long-terms behavior of the PCRV model was evaluated for sustained temperatures up to 140 F (60 C). Major emphasis was placed on the creep of concrete subjected to complex mechanical and thermal loading conditions.

Temperature rise of 11 mixtures, seven containing relatively large amounts of pozzoloan with relatively small amounts of portland cement, and nine with chemical admixutres, was investigated.
Nikolai G. Zoldners
Thermal properties of concrete are defined and thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of cement paste, aggregate, mortar and concrete are discussed in detail.
