The purpose of this continuing investigation is to develop information regarding the time-dependent deformation behavior of concrete in the presence of varying temperature, moisture, and loading conditions similar to those encountered in a prestressed concrete reactor vessel (PCRV). This particular investigation is concerned with one concrete strength, three aggregate types, one cement, two moisture conditions, two testing temperature, and four loading conditions.
