Abstract:An 859-ft building was instrument deformations of column of individual member displacements were measured (262 m) high reinforced concrete ted to m easure the time-dependents and walls. Vertical shortening S and their relative vertical sured at selected floor levels. Laboratory tests were the field. The elastic modulus, coefficients and shrinkage with age each different concrete laboratory tests and vertical shortening of values were compared performed on concrete obtained in iation 0f compressive strength, icient of thermal expansion, creep, of conc rete were determined for rete st rength. Based on the detailed construction records, the column S was calculated. These with those measured in the building.
