The influence of amount of torque, duration of loading, age on loading, humidity conditions, and sand content on various deformation components was studied. A theory, formulated on the reversible and nonreversible time-processes taking place in the mortar, is presented that attributes shrinkage, swelling, and creep and its recovery to water migration within the cement gel.
