How to Reduce Shrinkage of Concrete at Construction Site PDF

Prevent concrete re tempering at the construction site since it increases drying shrinkage because of the increase of water content 7 Proper Curing The adoption of proper curing mechanisms can reduce concrete shrinkage Adequate curing allows concrete to hydrate appropriately and gain designated strength.

Types of Shrinkage in Concrete detailed study

Shrinkage is the change in volume over time in a way it decreases the dimensions of the concrete The volume of concrete changes during the hardening process due to the effect of hydration of cement and concrete drying process with the loss of water in the paste.

Effect of Aggregate on Drying Shrinkage of Concrete

concrete is caused mainly by shrinkage of cement paste and that aggregate serves as a restraint on the shrinkage of cement paste Accordingly lightweight aggregate with a lower modulus of elasticity should offer less re straint on the potential shrinkage of cement paste and this should lead to higher shrinkage of concrete than normal aggregate.
