This CD is a collection of papers prepared for a session held at the ACI 2007 Fall Convention in Puerto Rico on the effects of shrinkage and creep of concrete. The papers are organized into four groups: 1) design, construction, and behavior of bridge structures; 2) effect of concrete shrinkage and creep on the design and construction of tall buildings; 3) deflection and cracking serviceability of slabs, beams, and walls; and 4) other problems and basic questions.
