Formatted abstract

Size effects are a major factor in influencing shrinkage in concrete. This report reviews current codes, journals and textbooks pertaining size effects in shrinkage. This report looks into the history of size effects in shrinkage and how the current codes involve size effects in their predictions. The results of other researchers for prediction accuracy, size and shape effects are presented and discussed. In addition, personal investigations into several codes are presented. This review shows that current concrete codes are adequate in predicting size effects in shrinkage, but there is still room for improving the accuracy of predictions.
