- The creep behavior of concrete subjected to triaxial compressive stresses and elevated temperature was evaluated. Strains were measured in cylindrical specimens subjected to 58 test conditions: 0--3600 psi compressions; curing times of 90, 183, and 365 days; two curing histories (air-dried and as-cast); and two temperatures (75 and 150/sup 0/F). The 90-day-cwed specimens were loaded for 12 months, followed by 5-month recovery. The other specimens were uniaxially stressed to 600 or 2400 psi for 5.25 or 4.75 years at 75/sup 0/F, followed by 77-day recovery. Strain measurements were made during the curing, loaded, and unloaded-recovery periods. This report describes the experiment setup and summarizes the results and recommendations. (DLC)
