Protected Paste Volume in Concrete: Extension to Internal Curing Using Saturated Lightweight Fine Aggregate

Published

Author(s)

Dale P. Bentz, Kenneth A. Snyder

Abstract

One difficulty in the field use of high performance concrete is the extensive self-desiccation and autogeneous shrinkage that may occur due to its lower w/c ratio and the addition of silica fume to the mixture proportions. Several researchers have proposed the use of saturated lightweight aggregates to provide
