## Creep Coefficient given Creep Strain Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Creep Coefficient = Ultimate creep strain/Elastic strain
Φ = εcr,ult/εel
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Creep Coefficient - Creep Coefficient is the ratio of Creep strain to elastic strain.
Ultimate creep strain - Ultimate creep strain is caused due to the sustained load for a long period of time.
Elastic strain - Elastic strain is defined as the limit for the values of strain up to which the object will rebound and come back to the original shape upon the removal of the load.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Ultimate creep strain: 0.5 --> No Conversion Required
Elastic strain: 0.05 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Φ = εcr,ultel --> 0.5/0.05
Evaluating ... ...
Φ = 10
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
10 --> No Conversion Required
10 <-- Creep Coefficient

## < 7 Losses Due to Creep and Shrinkage Calculators

Loss in Prestress given Creep Strain
Loss in prestress = Modulus of Elasticity of Steel*Ultimate creep strain
Ultimate Shrinkage Strain given Loss in Prestress
Shrinkage strain = Loss in prestress/Modulus of Elasticity of Steel
Loss in Prestress given Shrinkage Strain
Loss in prestress = Modulus of Elasticity of Steel*Shrinkage strain
Creep Coefficient given Creep Strain
Creep Coefficient = Ultimate creep strain/Elastic strain
Elastic Strain given Creep Strain
Elastic strain = Ultimate creep strain/Creep Coefficient
Ultimate Creep Strain
Ultimate creep strain = Creep Coefficient*Elastic strain
Shrinkage Strain for Post tensioning
Shrinkage strain = 0.002/(log10(Age of concrete+2))

## Creep Coefficient given Creep Strain Formula

Creep Coefficient = Ultimate creep strain/Elastic strain
Φ = εcr,ult/εel

## What is difference between creep and shrinkage?

In shrinkage, the loss is due to difference in the relative humidity of concrete and the environment, in creep it is due to sustained applied stress. The factors that effect creep also effects shrinkage. They both increase with: higher cement content, higher water content, lower aggregate content, low relative humidity, high temperature, small thickness of the member, etc.
