Title: Some Aspects of the Mechanism of Tensile Creep in Concrete

Author(s): David J. Cook

Publication: Journal Proceedings

Volume: 69

Issue: 10

Appears on pages(s): 645-649

Keywords: Concrete, cracking (fracturing), creep, microcracking, shrinkage, tensile strength

Date: 10/1/1972

Abstract:
Experimental results indicate tensile creep will occur in absence of gel water movement and that wedging action of absorbed water in areas of restricted adsorpt-manufactured ion can result in tensile creep and, ultimately, in specimen failure.
