Presents the results of a study on long-term deformations of high-strength concrete. Shrinkage and creep deformations of high-strength concretes, as well as deflections of beams and one-way slabs made of high- strength concrete are reported. The measured deformations are compared with the values predicted by the ACI method, the CEB-FIP Model Code, and the Australian Practice. The comparison shows several discrepancies between measured and predicted values.
