Concrete Creep and Shrinkage

The calibration and validation of creep and shrinkage models requires comprehensive datasets of sufficiently long measurement time. On this page the so far largest collection of creep and shrinkage laboratory data and multi-decade structural observations are made available. This databases were assembled under the guidance of Prof. Bažant at Northwestern university ( with financial support from the U.S. Department of Transportation, provided through Grant 20778 from the Infrastructure Technology Institute of Northwestern University, and from the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) in the form of the Erwin-Schrödinger Scholarship J3619-N13.
