Abstract:The project is designed to study the feasibility of using a short-time sonic test as a means of developing a procedure to predict the creep that will occur in concrete normally used in construction of highways and highway structures. As the magnitude of creep depends on a number of factors and as normal creep tests take a long time before the necessary information is obtained, development of a short-time teat to predict the magnitude of creep would be very helpful for design purposes. Concrete behaves as a viscoelastic material when subjected to static or dynamic loading. Damping capacity and creep of concrete are two aspects of the same phenomenon, the viscoelastic behavior of concrete. This leads one to seek a possible correlation between the two. The former being relatively easy to determine in a short time, the results of the investigation promise a great practical utility.
