This thesis deals with the problem of creep in concrete and its influence on thermal stress development. New test frames were developed for creep of high performance concrete and for measurements of thermal stress development. Tests were performed on both normal strength and high performance concretes. Two new models for concrete creep are proposed. Firstly, a viscoelastic model, the triple power law, is supplemented with two additional functions for an improved modelling of the early age creep behaviour. Secondly, a new engineering creep model is proposed suited for design purposes. The basic feature of this model is based on the creep expressions in CEB/FIP Mo...
