Title: Influence of Aggregate Properties on Concrete Shrinkage

Author(s): Torben C. Hansen and Knud E. C. Nielsen

Publication: Journal Proceedings

Volume: 62

Issue: 7

Appears on pages(s): 783-794

Keywords: aggregate, cement paste, concrete, modulus of elasticity, research, restraint, shrinkage, shrinking aggregate.

A theory of the influence of aggregate properties on concrete shrinkage is presented. An equation is derived from which the shrinkage of concrete may be computed from the fractional volume, the modulus of elasticity, and the shrinkage of cement paste and aggregate. A comparison is made between theoretical and experimental results.
