  2. Shrinkage due to drying:The difference between the length of an adult specimen cut from the concrete and saturated with the sample in dry condition.
  3. Movement of moisture content:The difference between the fixed length of the sample after it has been saturated with water.
Standards: ASTM C490, C348, BS EN 12617-4, 12808-4
