Abstract:

The paper represents a state-of-the-art report on the effect of temperature changes upon the dimensions of concrete members. Following a discussion of the phenomena induced by temperature changes in concrete, coefficients of thermal expansion reported in the literature for various concretes and test conditions are reviewed and an incremental iteration analysis is outlined as a possible approach to solve complex thermal expansion problems.
