AbstractIt is well known that concrete, in common with many other materials, when subjected to a continuously applied stress will undergo a time-dependent deformation commonly called creep. Fortunately in many practical situations the creep is small in relation to the deformation caused by load and its occurrence may have little effect on the general performance of the structure. In many contemporary applications of concrete materials, however, the creep may be relatively important. This is particularly true of some of the newer concrete materials which may exhibit a greater tendency to creep, and of some of the newer ways of using concrete such as in prestressing.
