Title: Influence of Water-Cement Ratio on Mortar in which Shrinkage is Restrained
Author(s): F. A. Blakey
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 591-604
Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:Title No. 55-38 brings a report on the stress and strain conditions at the instant of cracking for small bars of cement mortar whose shrinkage was restrained from an early age by a centrally placed steel rod. Dr. Blakey shows that cracking probably starts as a definite elastic strain in the cement paste phase of the mortar. He also reports on the creep and shrinkage of mortars.
