A Conception of the Creep of Unreinforced Concrete, and an Estimation of the Limiting Values

It is well known that the loading of certain -materials produces not only an initial and immediate strain, but also a further deformation which continues to increase with t'ime, although the applied load is unaltered. Just as a block of pitch flows continuously under the action of a load which may be merely its own weight, so, in varying degrees of magnitude, is the phenomenon noticeable in other materials such as cement, concrete, stone and wood, when they are maintained under constant load.
