Eight-Year Exploration of Shrinkage in High-Performance Concrete.

Persson, Bertil LU (2002) In Cement and Concrete Research 32(8). p.1229-1237
Abstract
In this paper an experimental and analytical exploration on the effect of water-binder ratio (w/b), silica fume and age on autogenous, carbonation, drying and total shrinkage of High-Performance Concrete (HPC) is outlined. Eight types of HPC were studied. Carbonation, internal relative humidity (RH) and strength were studied on specimens from the same batch of HPC that was used in the studies of shrinkage. The results indicate fairly good correlation between carbonation, shrinkage, w/b and RH. The type and amount of silica fume affected shrinkage.
