In this article an extensive experimental and numerical study of shrinkage in HPC is outlined. For this purpose cylinders of eight qualities of concrete were studied. Parallel studies of autogenous, carbonation and drying shrinkage, hydration, internal relative humidity and strength were carried out. Previous research in the field is summed up. Finally the article presents the mechanisms of shrinkage in HPC by modelling correlations to the composition of the concrete and the physical properties. The project was carried out between the years 1992 and 1996.
