Title: SP-076: Designing for Creep and Shrinkage in Concrete Structures
Author(s): Aberdeen Publication
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 496
A collection of 19 papers on creep and shrinkage in concrete structures. The papers discuss the effects of creep and shrinkage from the practical standpoint of the designer and offer recent research. Topics include: effects of volume changes, time-dependent slab deflections, predicting long-term prestress losses, creep strains and stress redistribution in reinforced concrete columns, analyzing time-dependent forces in continuous concrete structures, stress redistribution in cable-stayed concrete structures, drying shrinkage of high-strength concrete with superplasticizer, deflection of prestressed concrete beams. The book also includes a report from the ACI Committee on Creep and Shrinkage (209R-82) which reviews the methods for predicting creep, shrinkage and temperature effects in concrete structures. Simplified methods are used to predict the material response and to analyze the structural response under service conditions.
