AbstractThis research investigated the effectiveness of internal curing for reducing autogenous shrinkage cracking in high-performance concrete.Different levels of internal curing were applied to four pairs of large-size prismatic specimens tested simultaneously under free and restrained shrinkage. Internal curing was supplied by pre-soaked fine lightweight aggregate used as a partial replacement for regular sand.
