Some degree of prestress can be achieved through the use of expansive cements. Depending on the magnitude of prestress developed, expansive cement concretes are classified as shrinkage-comprensating or as self-stressing.
This report reviews the research and development of expansive cements during the past 50 years which culminated in commerical application in the 1940's, who is credited with discovery of expansive cements, showed promise but none of his findings were reduced to practice.

The use of expansive cement in continuously reinforced and prestressed concrete pavements could be effective not only in comprensating drying shrinkage of concrete pavements but also in inducing a self-stress due to the restraint of expansion by subgrade friction and reinforcement, if the expansion of ocncrete due to expansive cement existed sufficiently for a long period. Therefore the application of expansive cement to concrete pavements were examined experimentally in the laboratory and field work.
P.K. Mehta, George Lesnikoff
In this investigation commercially available samples of shrinkage-compensating cements, Type K, Type M, and Type S, were examined with regards to hydration reactions, and their influence on the physical properties.
This paper describes the results of experiements on expansive concretes made with additions of expansive components at time of mixing, summarizes the results of practical usuage of expansive concretes in numerous structures, discusses the results of studies on use of expansive components and concludes that all of the aims projected had been attained regardless of ambient termperature, degree of dryness or wetness, type of cement and concrete mix proportion.
