Abstract:
This paper presents results which show the plastic flow characteristics of hand-rodded and vibrated concrete over a 10 1/2-year period. Three different cements and three different water-cement ratios were included in the test program. The effect of the 10 1/2-year loading period on the compressive strength and the modulus of elasticity is also shown.
