Abstract:
The behaviors of tensile creep of high performance concrete with water-binder ratio of 0.3 under curing temperatures of 20℃ and 35℃ at early ages are experimentally investigated by improving the set of testing apparatus designed by author,and the effects of initial loading ages and curing temperatures on tensile creep behavior are discussed.The results show that tensile creep strain of earlyage concrete decreases as the loading age and curing temperature increases.
