Title: Maturing Creep of Portland Cement Paste
Author(s): J. Timusk, R. S. Ghosh
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 959-967
Keywords: Age-strength relationship, cement pastes,
compressive strength, creep properties, creep
tests, hydration, research
Abstract:Describes uniaxial creep tests at constant stress-strength ratio on maturing cement paste. Tests show creep is not a linear function of the stress-strength ratio when it is hydrating under load, and when load is continuously increased to maintain a constant stress-strength ratio.
