Seminar - Thanh Binh Nguyen - Investigating The Effect Of Shrinkage Stresses On Creep
Wednesday 15 August 2007, 1.10 - 1.50 pm
Civil Engineering Lecture Theatre 3
By use of novel experimental investigations, this research will clarify the differentiation of creep and shrinkage effects with regard to the effects of specimen sizes and loading conditions (e.g., bending or axial loading). In particular moisture diffusion, differential shrinkage strains, creep will be evaluated in numerical models. Moreover, the numerical investigation is carried out in order to obtain reliable predictions of shrinkage effects for "full-scale" concrete structures.
