In this second article, we examine in greater detail the influence of concrete skin micro-cracking, linked with the non-uniformity of water content within the specimen. This cracking is responsible for the drying creep which results from a structural effect, also called “microcracking effect”, and which we prefer to call “structural creep” here. It is defined as the difference between the potential drying shrinkage of a specimen which does not crack and the shrinkage measured experimentally. We… CONTINUE READING
