The purpose of this form is to estimate the autogenous
deformation of a concrete based on measurements performed on its component
mortar and the application of the equations of Pickett. The user simply
fills in the table below and provides the other necessary inputs such as
volume fraction of coarse aggregate and elastic properties of the concrete
and the coarse aggregate, and the table will be updated with the estimates
for the autogenous deformation of the concrete.
