AbstractThis paper deals with the development of low-shrinkage, high-performance concrete (HPC). It presents results of structural laboratory testing of large prismatic HPC specimens under restrained shrinkage and tensile creep. It presents a systematic testing approach including a description of the theoretical background and the experimental apparatus.
