SP27-10

Date: 

January 1, 1971

Author(s):

Ignacio Martin and Jose Acosta

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

27

Abstract:

A simple length limitation is insufficient to take into account the temperature and shrinkage effects on a reinforced concrete structure. After analyzing 98 typical one story frames in a computer, an equation was arrived at, to determine the maximum allowable length of on story reinforced concrete structures as a function of the length and rigidity of the members and the thermal variation in the location.

Symposium Papers

Volume:

27

Abstract:

A summary of the papers presented in the symposium on Designing for Effects of Creep, Shrinkage, and Temperature, including: (a) the problem; (b) living with the problem; (c) data required; (d) a choice of design approach; (e) some specific recommendations. Having recognized the problem, the purpose of this symposium is to provide guidance for designers. The papers submitted suggest that there are two available approaches: 1. Design so as to avoid the problem; 2. Learn to live with it.

Symposium Papers

Volume:

Abstract:

A procedure is presented to analyze frames of multistory structures for the structural effects of differential elastic and inelastic shortening between adjacent columns or walls..Results are presented of a 6 1/2 year observation of elastic plus creep and shrinkage strains of a number of columns and walls in the second story of a 38 story building. The measured strains are compared with the analytically computed and found to be in acceptable agreement.

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

27

Abstract:

Presented are design procedures for predicting strength and elastic properties, creep, and shrinkage as a function of time. Continuous functions are provided for all standard equations and correction factors, so that the procedures readily lend themselves to computer solution.

SP27-05

Date: 

January 1, 1971

Author(s):

Charles H. Raths

Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

27

Abstract:

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.
