Values of instantaneous recovery and creep recovery of mortars made with different cements are presented. It appears that creep recovery is not related to mortar strength in the simple manner in which creep has been found to depend on this strength. Some data on the change in weight indicate that creep does not produce an addi- tional movement of water from the cement paste into the surrounding medium.
