Abstract: For the simulation of temperature fields and restraint stresses in hardening concrete structures, the properties of early age concrete has to be known. This report is an extract of a research project which dealt with the thermal and mechanical properties, stress-strain curve, creep and relaxation and autogenous shrinkage of early age concrete. Here, only the mechanical short and long-term properties of early age concrete will be dealt with. In addition to the experimental results, models will be presented.
