Thermal Expansion and Contraction

An average value for the coefficient of thermal expansion of concrete is about 10 millionths per degree Celsius (10x10 -6 /C), although values ranging from 7 to 12 millionths per degree Celsius have been observed. This amounts to a length change of 1.7 centimeters for every 30.5 meters of concrete subjected to a rise or fall of 38 degrees Celsius.

methods of predicting long-time stress relaxation losses. An example of a curve predicted by this equation is given in Fig. 1. Concrete creep and shrinkage. In eval-uating the concretes contribution to prestress losses, creep and shrinkage strain have been accepted by the indus-try as the proper indicators of the time dependent changes in the

the same in spite of the difference of elastic modulus. However, if the model is not same, in the same average strain, the crack width of model 1 is smaller than that of model 2. Initial stifness, k1 of model 1 is larger than model 2, consequently, model 1 can reduce the extent of crack width comparing with model 2.

Setting behavior and shrinkage of high performance

Additionally, free drying shrinkage increases linearly with autogenous shrinkage between 0 and 14 days. The results of the present study indicate that the concrete maturity method successfully describes the concrete setting behavior; and the exponential model successfully predicts the shrinkage behavior of high-performance concrete with SCMs.

Influence of Calcium Sulfoaluminate (CSA) Cement Content

May 09,  · Calcium sulfoaluminate (CSA) cements have lower carbon footprint than that of portland cement, which makes them a suitable alternative as a sustainable cementitious binder. Early-age expansion of CSA cements can be exploited to induce compressive stress in restrained concrete which can later counteract tensile stress developed during drying
