Title: Low Slump Concrete Results in Cost Savings for Prestressed Containment Structures
Author(s): D. E. Graham
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 126-129
Keywords: costs;creep properties;drying shrinkage;nuclear reactors;post-tensioning; prestressed concrete;prestressing steels;slump tests.
Abstract:Considerations of increases in drying shrinkage, autogenous shrinkage, and creep due to increasing slump indicate an increased cost for prestressing to maintain constant prestress. An example using ordinary methods and materials highlights the difference.
