Abstract

The early age shrinkage and creep of steel fiber reinforced concrete were investigated to provide measurements of creep, shrinkage and resistance to cracking. The computer-controlled test was designed to check shrinkage deformation continuously and compare to the threshold value which when exceeded, triggered an increase in tensile load to recover shrinkage strain in the restrained specimen. The experiment revealed that the shrinkage stresses developed at early age are by no means negligible, and reached a substantial fraction of the tensile strength.
