    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    This paper deals with autogenous deformation and autogenous relative humidity change (RH change) in hardening cement paste. Theoretical considerations and experimental data are presented, which elucidate the influence of temperature on these properties. This is an important subject in the control of early age cracking of concrete. It is demonstrated that the traditional maturity concept generally is not applicable to autogenous deformation and autogenous RH change. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
