Abstract:
Various theories of creep in concrete are critically reviewed. It is suggested that creep is due to more than one cause, notably to viscous flow with a gradual transfer of load to the aggregate, and to moisture movement due to evaporation and external force, this movement being of the nature of increased shrinkage as compared with a similar unloaded specimen.
