AbstractIn this paper the effect of limestone and granite aggregate on drying shrinkage of a concrete is investigated. Mixes containing limestone and granite with different Dmax and cement paste volume were tested. A two level, full factorial experiment with three independent factors was conducted which allowed not only to determine the influence of every single factor itself but also potential interactions between them.Measurements of shrinkage were performed up to 98 days after demolding on the beams (10x10x50 cm), in accordance with the procedure from polish standard PN-84/B-06714/23 (Amsler’s method). The multivariate analysis of variances (MANOVA) was used for the statistical analysis of the results. The obtained results confirm that the cement paste volume has a decisive influence on a drying shrinkage of a concrete. However statistical analysis showed that with the assumed variability, either the Dmax or type of coarse aggregate has no significant influence on drying shrinkage, still those parameters may potentially be crucial in some cases.A statistically significant interaction between Dmax and type of aggregate has been found. Furthermore the results of drying shrinkage measurements were compared with estimation results from Bażant-Baweja B3 Model and Eurocode 2. The comparison shows that B3 Model provided more accurate results than Eurocode 2.
