Protected Paste Volume in Concrete: Extension to Internal Curing Using Saturated Lightweight Fine Aggregate
Dale P. Bentz, Kenneth A. Snyder
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
