Drying Shrinkage - Penn State College of Engineering

1999-7-12  The concrete properties influence on drying shrinkage depends on the ratio of water to cementitious materials content, aggregate content, and total water content. The total water content is the most important of these. The relationship between the amount of water content of fresh concrete and the drying shrinkage is linear. Increase of the water content by one percent will approximately increase the drying shrinkage

Drying Shrinkage - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Drying shrinkage is caused by nonuniform drying of concrete after curing and the removal of forms. It increases with a greater w/c ratio [4]. Cracks caused by cement drying shrinkage generally happen 1 week after concrete casting or shortly after concrete finishes curing.

What is Drying Shrinkage? Its Occurrence, Causes, and ...

2021-4-18  Drying shrinkage causes tensile stresses which if exceed the tensile strength of the concrete will develop cracks. Rich concrete mixes with low water to cement ratio (W/C) show greater shrinkage. Concrete with the lowest water to cement ratio has the highest one-year shrinkage regardless of initial moist curing time.

Drying and shrinkage of massive concrete wall

2019-2-20  Shrinkage of concrete is of prime interest for engineering practice due to the fact that it is a significant factor causing cracking which may consequently reduce durability of concrete. On the other hand, drying of concrete is a main cause of shrinkage (next to hydration reactions which cause autogenous shrinkage) and influence also drying creep.

Effect of Slag Cement on Drying Shrinkage of Concrete

2015-3-1  The study shows that a partial replacement of cement with slag cement decreases free shrinkage compared to mixtures containing 100% portland cement; the reduction is greatest at early ages and is improved as the replacement level is increased. Increasing the curing period decreases free shrinkage for mixtures with and without slag cement.
