Abstract:In Japan, expansive cement concretes are made by the addition of expansive components at the time of mixing in the field. According to the quantity involved these expansive components can be used in shrinkage-compensating concretes, or self-stressing concretes. This paper describes the present state of expansive cement concretes in Japan, some information on principal research reports, standard test methods, recommended practices, and examples of the use of expansive cement concretes for various types of structure.
