### Finite-Element Modeling of Early-Age Concrete Behavior

Aug 04, 2018 Early-age stress development in concrete is influenced by temperature changes, modulus of elasticity, creep or stress relaxation, shrinkage, coefficient of thermal expansion, and the degree of restraint. In this dissertation, three -dimensional, finite element analysis was used to model the early age stress development of concrete.
