Title: Expansive Cement Concretes-A Review
Author(s): Shu-t’ien Li
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 689-706
Keywords: chemical prestressing, coincrete, expansive cement concrete, history, self-stressing cement, shrinkage-compensated cement, survey.
Abstract:Expansive cements and concretes, although seemingly new engineering materials, have had a long history of development. During the past 74 years, there have been recurrent efforts to develop expansive cements. However, only in the last 15 years has there been successful production and application of such cements to controlled expansive concretes. Historical developments of expansive cements in France, the Soviet Union, and the United States are briefly reviewed; salient properties of self-stressings, and shrinkage compensated, expansive cements and concretes are summarized; current applications of expansive concretes are examined; and their potential uses are indicated.
