RE: ACI 318-2002 Creep, Shrinkage

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
R9.2.3 is a subsection of Sect. 9.2 "Required Strength". Creep and shrinkage can impair strength due to losses as with post-tensioned systems. Creep and shrinkage should also be considered in high rise construction, and in composite column construction, but is considered more of a detailing consideration.

ACI 318-2002 Commentary R9.2.3
"The designer should consider the effects of differential settlement ,
creep, shrinkage, and shrinkage-compansating concrete.
The term realistic assessment is used to indicate that the most probable
values rather than the upper bound values of the variables should be used."

Are there any practical design reference to incorporate above provision ?
What is the general practice in the reinforced concrete building regarding
to creep and shrinkage?

Thanks in advance
