This investigation, conducted at the Non-Destructive Testing Laboratory at the Politecnico di Torino, made it possible to establish an experimental relationship between specific creep values measured in concrete test pieces obtained from different mixes and the decrease in temperature observed in identical test pieces at the end of low-intensity short-duration compressive tests. This relationship is independent of type of mix and therefore has general validity: it can be used to make qualitative predictions about creep without having to perform long duration tests. It may lead to interesting developments in various applications, especially in the field of structural diagnosis.
