Abstract:
Paper reviews the influence on creep and shrinkage of water reducers, retarders and accelerators, and superplasticizers. Few generalizations can be made. Partial replacement of cement fly ash or blast furnace slag leads to reduced creep except for early age loading. Specific properties of the materials used affect creep. Data on the use of microsilica suggest that it increases creep. Because of the paucity of data available, reliable deductions about the influence of various materials cannot be made and, in important cases, experimental determination of creep and shrinkage of concrete with the actual mix ingredients may be necessary.
