Abstract:
A progress report of an investigation to ascertain rate and extent of volume change in concrete masonry walls as affected by moisture content of units at time of laying. The author reports shrinkage measurements on 24 panels of sand and gravel, cinder, and H a concrete masonry panels over 150 days. Wall shrin k d i t e age was greatly reduced by having units dry at time of laying. High-pressure steam currng also was effective in reducing shrinkage.
