    Abstract

    Elasticity is that property of a material which enables it to deform under the action of an external force and to return to its original size and shape upon removal of the force. Like most other structural materials, concrete possesses to a certain degree this property of elasticity. Although possibly never perfectly elastic, it is sufficiently so that within limits of stress and of time its behavior can be predicted quite accurately by the theory of elasticity.
