In making a recent test (April, 1915) of a reinforced concrete building the writers found concrete deformation in the building which greatly exceeded those in the laboratory tests, under, presumably, approximately the same unit stresses. It was found, further, that the deformation in the building increased during the few days that the maximum test load was allowed to remain. It seemed probable, therefore, that the time element should be considered in interpreting the stresses, but a search in available literature failed to disclose any data on the subject.
