Abstract

The constitutive equation for creep, shrinkage and thermal expansion, which reflects correctly the effect of variable humidity and temperature, including the effect of size, shape and stress distribution, is derived. Cement paste and concrete are treated as a multi-phase composite material, in which both the static and thermodynamic conditions of equilibrium must be considered.
