Author(s): G. E. Troxell
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 209-230
Abstract:Summarizes known information concerning volume changes of concrete, outlines research required to determine the unknown effect of certain factors on volume changes, and indicates how damage of structures due to volume changes may be at least partially prevented by proper choice of materials used and proportioning of the mix, by correct design of the structure, and by proper construction methods.
