Influence of Shrinkage Reduce Agent on Early Age Autogenous Shrinkage of Concrete

Abstract:

Article Preview

Based on designed and manufactured test equipment of concrete early age shrinkage, the influence of shrinkage reduce agent (SRA) on early age autogenous shrinkage of concrete was researched. The test results show that early age autogenous shrinkage of concrete was reduced with SRA added and the shrinkage-reducing ratio increased with concrete strength grade heightened. SRA could also greatly reduce early age autogenous shrinkage of concrete added with pulverized ly ash or slag. Superplasticizer would increse early age autogenous shrinkage of concrete, and the shrinkage was larger than those without superplasticizer, even the SRA mixed into. Furthermore, early age curing should be enhanced for concrete with superplasticizer.
