Paper Abstract

Stress measuring and monitoring play an important role in the construction monitor for HuangPu Bridge in Guangzhou Pearl River, and it ensure the construction safe and normal status of finished bridge. The strain of concrete includes not only the elastic strain resulted from the load effect, but also the non-elastic strain resulted from the creep and shrinkage of concrete. The difficulty for separating creep and shrinkage is the determining for the creep coefficient. A partial site test on creep and shrinkage for the concrete is carried out. The parameters of prediction model CEB-FIP1990 are modified, and some expressions for creep and shrinkage, which are suitable for this project, are acquired. Based on the linearity principle of superposition, the concrete's elastic stress is calculated, and the creep and shrinkage can be separated more accurately.
