Calibration and validation of creep and shrinkage models require comprehensive data sets covering sufficiently long loading and drying time periods. So far the largest collection of creep and shrinkage laboratory data and multi-decade structural observations has been compiled at Northwestern University. It is freely available from the following sites:

Evaluation of the compliance function, relaxation function and shrinkage strains based on advanced models can be facilitated by various tools:
