Title: Influence of Aggregate Properties on Concrete Shrinkage
Author(s): Torben C. Hansen and Knud E. C. Nielsen
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 783-794
Keywords: aggregate, cement paste, concrete, modulus of elasticity, research, restraint, shrinkage, shrinking aggregate.
Abstract: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.
