The chemical shrinkage and the autogenous shrinkage have been determined experimentally for cement pastes incorporating different W/C ratio and different amount of the following addition: silica fume, fly ash and sand. The measurement method of the chemical shrinkage and autogenous shrinkage both were the volumetric technique. The silica fume has a effect of increasing the autogenous shrinkage while have a minor effect on the chemical shrinkage. The addition of fly-ash and sand both decreased the amount of chemical shrinkage and autogenous shrinkage.
