Creep and Shrinkage of SCC
Creep and shrinkage are an important factor related to serviceability conditions for concrete structures. Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) requires modifications in mix design to produce flowable and nonsegregating concrete. These modifications raise concerns on SCC creep and shrinkage predicting models which originally developed based on collected data of conventional concrete and whether these models can predict the creep and shrinkage of SCC accurately. In this chapter, creep and shrinkage of various grades and types of SCC (such as high strength-self consolidating concrete (HS-SCC) and high performance-self consolidating concrete (HP-SCC)) were included and discussed. In addition, comparisons were included between measured data of SCC and common predicting models used by designers. This chapter found that none of these current models are able to include the broad range of SCC mixes that may be produced for specialized SCC applications in today's market.
