Study on Effects of Admixture and Shrinkage Models on High-Performance Concrete
The study on contraction of high performance concrete affected by slag, ash, silica fume, concrete shrinkage reducing admixture and water reducing admixture indicates that early contraction distortion of high-performance concrete is more complex that of ordinary concrete. A practical model for calculating stressis given.Compared to ordinary model of contraction, the proposed model in the paper is more suitable for the contraction distortion calculation of high performance concrete.
