    The companion paper in this issue (Bazant et al. 1997) presents a generalization of the solidification theory. Compared to the previous solidification theory, the generalization is better justified by the understanding of the physical processes involved in the effects of aging and drying on the creep of concrete. It remains to formulate a numerical algorithm for practical application of this new theory in finite-element programs and to compare the new theory to the main available experimental data. This is the purpose of this paper. All the definitions and notations introduced in the preceding paper are retained.
