Abstract: Results of a comprehensive experimental study of the time-dependent behavior of normal strength concrete are presented. Compressive creep as well as shrinkage were investigated on sealed and unsealed cylindrical specimens. The creep specimens were loaded at concrete ages of 2, 7, and 28 days to 30% of the compressive strength at the respective concrete age at loading. Based on the presented measurement data, the Pickett effect was re-examined. In addition, the evolution of the mass water content in sealed and unsealed load-free and loaded specimens was determined by means of an electrolytic resistivity-based system for investigating the impact of load application on the moisture content.
