The aim of the research project is to study the influence of variations in temperature and relative humidity on shrinkage and creep of concrete. Use is made of the mean climatic data for Belgium as measured by the Royal Meteorological Institute. Theinfluence of the following parameters is investigated : water-cement ratio, cement content, notional thickness and the combination of climatic conditions at the start of the long-term tests.
