Title: Creep of Concrete at Low Stress-Strength Ratios and Elevated Temperatures
Author(s): Karim W. Nasser
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 137-148
Keywords: age; compressive strength; concretes; creep properties; creep recovery; curing; high temperature; modulus of elasticity; plain concrete; research; stresses; temperature; water-cement ratio
Abstract:Test results are presented of the creep, strength, elasticity and creep recovery of mass concrete which was tested in the temperature range of 35-205 F and under stress-strength ratios of 10-70 percent. Creep was enhanced by temperature but strength, elasticity and creep recovery were independent of its effects. The relation of creep to stress-strength ratio in the range of 10-70 percent was linear. Discussion of a hypothesis of the creep mechanism is also presented.
