Creep and long-time creep-recovery tests were conducted on four different concrete mixes. Time.dependent deformations were measured during loading and unloading for a 3 year test period. A rheological model, representing the creep and creep-recovery of the concrete, is proposed and the model constants evaluated.

A compilation of 6 papers giving a state-of-the-art report on various aspects of creep in concrete, written by authorities in this field and supported by formal discussion.
The influence of amount of torque, duration of loading, age on loading, humidity conditions, and sand content on various deformation components was studied. A theory, formulated on the reversible and nonreversible time-processes taking place in the mortar, is presented that attributes shrinkage, swelling, and creep and its recovery to water migration within the cement gel.

Properties and proportions of mix constituents, age of concrete at loading, storage conditions, stress-strength ratio, and other factors affecting creep are discussed. Various expressions for the creep-time relation are discussed, and prediction curves for creep of concrete of different properties and stored under different condition are presented.
Adrian Pauw and B. L. Meyers
Develops a procedure for including the effects of creep and shrinkage in design and analysis. The objective of the procedure is to permit the designer to automatically satisfy deflection criteria as well as allowable working stresses. Working equations for the general case are developed and equations are given for special cases, including beams with and without compressive reinforcement, and prestressed concrete beams.
