Title: Creep of Concrete as a Function of Temperature
Author(s): J.C. Marechal
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 547-564
Keywords: aggregates; concretes; creep properties; curing; deformation; desorption; high temperature; moisture content; permeability; porphyry; quartz; research; shrinkage; stresses
Abstract:Shrinkage and creep under different stresses were studied on several specimens of concrete. Once analyzed and discussed, the experimental results reveal to two classes of distinct phenomena: at high temperatures, the concrete, freed of its evaporable water, would appear to behave according to the classical Arrhenius equation during changes in state; for lower temperatures, pure creep due to temperature would be very slight, shrinkage and shrinkage under loading would vary with the steam pressures bringng about the desorption of evaporable water.
