The creep compliance of expanded polystyrene (EPS) slabs was studied with the aim of developing a simple way for prediction of long-term creep strain. The prediction of creep strains was carried for 10 years for specimens, which were subjected to long-term compression of σc = 0.35σ10%. The results were obtained in determining creep strains of the specimens of expanded polystyrene slabs with density ranging from 15.5 kg/m 3 to 35.5 kg/m 3 . The total time of testing was 988 days. The prediction… CONTINUE READING
