There are several materials and methods which have been designed and used for reduction or compensation of drying shrinkage deformations in cementitious materials, in both industry and research . Typical strategies currently used in industry for overcoming drying shrinkage include introduction of expansive agents; use of shrinkage reducing admixtures (SRA) and fibres as components of mixtures; cement modification; and, taking advantage of internal curing (Kovler & Zhutovsky, 2006).
