Paper Title:
Prediction on Autogenous Shrinkage of Self-Consolidating Concrete
  Abstract

Proper estimate of autogenous shrinkage of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) can provide engineers with the information necessary for producing high quality products manufactured with SCC. An experimental program was undertaken to evaluate autogenous shrinkage of precast, prestressed SCC. Sixteen SCC with slump flow of 680 ± 20 mm were evaluated. These mixtures were made with 440 to 500 kg/m3 of binder, Type MS cement or HE cement and 20% Class F fly ash, 0.34 to 0.40 w/cm, viscosity-modifying admixture content of 0 to 100 mL/100 kg of binder, and 0.46 to 0.54 sand-to-total aggregate volume ratio. Two high-performance concretes (HPC) with 0.34 and 0.38 w/cm and slump of 150 mm were also investigated. HPC developed similar autogenous shrinkage at 56 days compared to SCC made of a given binder type. Shrinkage was compared to prediction models proposed by Tawaza and Miyazawa 1997, Jonasson and Hedlund 2000, and CEB-FIP 1999. The Tazawa and Miyazawa model was modified to provide adequate prediction of autogenous shrinkage for precast, prestressed SCC.
