Mar 20, 2018  The drying shrinkage of lightweight foamed concrete was investigated in this study. The hypothesis of using the drying shrinkage of normal weight concrete to approximate that of lightweight foamed concrete of dry density about 1500 kg/m 3 counterpart was verified. Three different strategies of reducing drying shrinkage were studied.

Moisture Movement of Concrete: We know that when concrete is allowed to dry in air at a lower humidity it shrinks and when it is kept in 100% relative humidity or placed in water, it swells. Just as drying shrinkage is an ever continuing process, similarly swelling is also a continuing process if placed in water or 100% humidity conditions.

EARLY-AGE Shrinkage of Concrete

Once it has stiffened, set and hardened, concrete is a relatively brittle material that shrinks over time. Cracking will occur if the concrete is restrained against the movement that results from this shrinkage. While long-term (drying) shrinkage has been the focus of specifiers, recent studies have shown that the early loss of moisture from fresh

Nov 11, 2009  For a foam concrete with 50% foam volume, the shrinkage was observed to be about 36% lower than that of a base mix. The shrinkage of foam concrete is a function of foam volume and thus indirectly related to the amount and properties of shrinkable paste. Shrinkage increases greatly in the range of low moisture content.
