Abstract [en]

In order to make reliable predictions of thermal cracking risks in young concrete, modelling of the creep behaviour is important. The linear logarithmic creep model (LLM) has only been used to describe the creep behaviour of moisture-sealed concrete samples (basic creep). The aim of the present research is to check whether LLM could be also applied to drying creep. The results indicate that the LLM delivers good results for sealed but not for drying samples. Thus, refinement of the existing model (e.g., tri-linear instead of bi-linear in logarithmic time scale), or a new model is needed to account for the increase of creep due to on-going drying.

Abstract [en]

As known, load independent deformations are of large importance in structural analysis, e. g. when estimating elongations, restraint stresses, or pre-stressing forces. Two models to describe thermal dilation (TD) and autogenous shrinkage (AS) have been evaluated, for a broader range of w/C ratios and cements types than before. In Model I, AS is determined solely based on the maturity model and TD incorporates two TD coefficients (TDC). In Model II, AS is dependent on both the maturity model and a separate temperature adjustment factor, while TDC is constant. For the more rapid-hardening cement, Model I did not give satisfactory results, whereas the usefulness of Model II to describe both AS and TD has shown to be limited, suggesting that a new model is needed.

Abstract [en]

Heat of hydration has long been of importance since it affects the temperature levels within a concrete structure, and thus, potentially affects its durability. The only source of energy is the reaction between cement and water. This energy warms up the concrete sample and all the ambient materials. Therefore, in order to model these energies, the TSA (traditional semi-adiabat) setup is transformed into an associated sphere. By this, the temperature distribution and the energies within each layer of the TSA can be calculated. The sum of all energies gives the total heat of hydration. A refined model using a correction factor is introduced, which accounts for energies lost to the TSA setup materials. Results show that the effect of this factor cannot be disregarded, especially not for TSAs with low cooling factors.

Abstract [en]

The main aim of this thesis is to refine models for strength and heat development of the young concrete, and evaluate if developed models at Luleå University of Technology (LTU) for creep, autogenous shrinkage and thermal dilation needs refinement. These are of importance in hardening control and in crack control of a concrete structure.Strength development is one of the most important properties in concrete to consider when analysing concrete structures. The need of actions on site is different at various stages of hardening, from the fresh concrete to the hardened concrete. This thesis defines a model analysing maturity and associated strength growth within three important time periods. The model can be applied separately within each of these periods depending on test data available. Known is that the temperature plays an important role on the strength development of concrete structures. Not so well known is that, if the concrete temperature remains high, strength reduction at later ages often occurs compared to hardening at lower temperature. Both these phenomena have been implemented in the model for strength growth and the functionality of the model is demonstrated by evaluation of laboratory tests for five concrete mixes and two types of cement.As heat of hydration affects the temperature levels and several other properties of concrete structures it is important to document the parameters accurately. In the traditional semi-adiabat (TSA) the measured heat energy originates from the reaction between cement and water. This energy warms up the concrete sample and all the ambient materials of the equipment. In order to model these energies, the TSA setup is transformed into an associated sphere. A refined model using a correction factor is introduced, which accounts for energies lost to the TSA setup materials. Results show that the effect of this factor cannot be disregarded. An increased insulation amount gives a decreased cooling factor but an increased need for correction.Creep at constant temperature, both for moist sealed specimens and drying out conditions, are evaluated. The Linear Logarithmic creep Model (LLM) is shown to work well for basic creep, i.e. creep at moist sealed conditions. But, for creep during simultaneous moist drying, there is a need to adjust the current model or develop a new model to account for the increase of creep due to ongoing drying.Autogenous shrinkage and thermal dilation (free deformation) are evaluated from tests. For the free deformation of young concrete at variable temperature the existing models are satisfactory in modelling the thermal dilation, but in some cases the autogenous shrinkage cannot be adequately described. A new or refined model is needed that works for autogeneous shrinkage even at more complex temperature variations.

Abstract [en]

When casting concrete structures, one of the most important properties is the concrete strength development. The need of actions on site is different at various stages of hardening, from the fresh concrete to the hardened concrete. The paper defines a model analysing maturity and associated strength growth within three important time periods. The model can be applied separately within each of these periods depending on test data available.It is shown in the paper that the temperature plays an important role on the strength development of concrete structures. The hydration rate increases with increased temperatures, which can be described by maturity functions. If the concrete temperature remains high, strength reduction at later ages usually occurs compared to hardening at lower temperature, which may be denoted strength reduction at elevated temperatures or cross over effects. Both these phenomena have been implemented in the model for strength growth presented in the paper. The functionality of the model is demonstrated by evaluation of laboratory tests for five concrete mixes and two types of cement.

Abstract [en]

A durable structure of concrete is achieved when no cracking occurs during the young ages of the hardening process. Therefore, it’s of importance to address shrinkage and creep correctly. Drying is the primary source of shrinkage, and the time development in shrinkage is an effect of the balance between drying and creep. Therefore, creep is to be measured on sealed and non-sealed specimens in order to investigate the nature of drying creep. Measurements will be performed for loading ages up to 1 year. These experimental data will be used to create accurate models, including both short and long term effects.

Abstract [sv]

Ett grundläggande villkor, när man formulerar krypning för betong i ung ålder, är att undvika spänningsomkastning vid numeriska beräkningar. Detta är fysikaliskt omöjligt, och kan möjligen sägas vara ett resultat av att man använder additionsprincipen på ett problem, som till sin natur är icke-linjärt. Trots detta får inte beräkningarna ge spänningsomkastningar, och den Linjära Logaritmiska Modellen (LLM) har visat sig uppfylla detta villkor både för ung och mogen betong. Dessutom är LLM konstruerat på ett sånt sätt att formuleringen är väldigt robust och lätt att förstå och använda i praktiken. LLM har också visat sig vara en effektiv teknik att beskriva långtidskrypning utifrån korttidsförsök.

Abstract [sv]

Det är sedan länge känt att temperaturens inverkan på betongens hållfasthetsutveckling innebär att härdningshastigheten ökar med ökad temperatur. Detta kan beskrivas med en s k mognadsfunktion (eg. temperaturhastighetsfaktor). Det är också välkänt att om man bibehåller en hög härdningstemperatur under längre tid så erhåller man för många betonger en lägre sluthållfasthet. Bägge dessa fenomen har modellerats på ett sånt sätt att man kan beakta temperaturens inverkan redan vid planering av en betonggjutning, och för några betonger redovisas att modellen fungerar vid anpassning mot försök.
