The paper has been published. Thanks to 1H NMR Relaxometry, the relationship between humidity and voids has become clear. If we then review the shrinkage and creep in high humidity areas, a strange trend emerges. Moisture content and shrinkage no longer correspond. Although this phenomenon is troublesome for modelers, it is useful for understanding the phenomenon. By the way, Elsevier has released a new open access journal. I posted it because I was invited, but JACT’s rivals have also increased.
To identify the impact of drying rate on mechanisms of drying shrinkage, two hardened cement paste (hcp) samples were prepared. Mature samples were dra|
