Abstract:
Develops a procedure for including the effects of creep and shrinkage in design and analysis. The objective of the procedure is to permit the designer to automatically satisfy deflection criteria as well as allowable working stresses. Working equations for the general case are developed and equations are given for special cases, including beams with and without compressive reinforcement, and prestressed concrete beams.
