Abstract:

This recommendation is valid for structural applications of concrete under service and accident conditions. this document presents test parameters (material and environmental) and test procedures for determining the shrinkage in the direction of the central axis, of reference length of cylindrical concrete specimens under constant temperatures in the range of 20 deg
