Chapter 19: Elastic Properties, Creep, and Relaxation


A CHAPTER ON ELASTIC PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE first appeared in ASTM STP169 (1956) authored by L. W. Teller of the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads (now FHWA). Robert E. Philleo authored the chapters appearing in ASTM STP 169A (1966) and ASTM STP 169B (1978) under the title “Elastic Properties and Creep.” The chapter on elastic properties was reprinted in ASTM STP 169C as it appeared in ASTM STP 169B. This version is based largely on these earlier chapters; however, this chapter has been modified to include information on nondestructive testing, elastic modulus inferred from other test methods, and early age creep and relaxation measurements.
