This paper describes the results of experiements on expansive concretes made with additions of expansive components at time of mixing, summarizes the results of practical usuage of expansive concretes in numerous structures, discusses the results of studies on use of expansive components and concludes that all of the aims projected had been attained regardless of ambient termperature, degree of dryness or wetness, type of cement and concrete mix proportion.
