Abstract: High-performance concrete (HPC) typically has a low water to cementing materials ratio (w/cm), high binder content and may contain high levels of supplementary cementitious materials. Therefore, it can be more vulnerable to early-age cracking due to higher early-age deformations resulting from autogenous and drying shrinkage as well as thermal gradients. In this study, HPC was made with two types of blended cements containing 8% SF mixed with two types and replacement levels of GGBFS (25%, 50%) by mass of cement at 0.33 w/cm. Linear autogenous deformation was measured at constant temperature using a copper mould (75x75x500mm) with circulating cooling water (in order to decouple autogenous from thermal deformation). It was found that early-age volume change increased as the fineness of blended cement and the GGBFS increased.
