A simplified approach for the analysis of self induced stresses due to internal straining of concrete is presented. The approach has been broken in three steps.
W. Dilger and A.M. Neville
The paper shows how data on creep and shrinkage of plain concrete can be used to calculate deformation of reinforced, including prestressed, concrete. It is assumed that the time dependent characteristics of the material (creep and shrinkage) are known and are available in a convenient form…
ACI Committee 209
This paper presents a review of methods for predicting creep, shrinkage and temperature effects in concrete structures as related to reinforced beams and one-way slabs, two-way construction, prestressed beams, and composite beams. The paper is generally consistent with the ACI Building Code (ACI 318-71) and includes material indicated in the Code, but not specifically defined therein.
Charles H. Raths
Discusses actual distress conditions caused by the neglect of axial volume changes for different types of concrete structures. Basic data on creep, shrinkage and temperature change are presented for engineering design. A procedure is given for determinging the magnitude of axially restrained volume change foces in concrete structures.
The effect of environmental conditions on the design for temperature and shrinkage stresses of reinforced concrete structures is presented. The range of temperature variation, percentage of longitudinal steel, concrete mix, coefficient of thermal expansion and shrinkage coefficient of normal and lightweight concrete have been studied.
