Abstract:This paper presents a review of methods for predicting creep, shrinkage and temperature effects in concrete structures as related to reinforced beams and one-way slabs, two-way construction, prestressed beams, and composite beams. The paper is generally consistent with the ACI Building Code (ACI 318-71) and includes material indicated in the Code, but not specifically defined therein.
