The creep phenomenon of hardening cement paste mixed with an expansive additive was modeled by considering the creep performance of hydration products of cement and expansive additive. A new composite model that is appropriate for particle conditions is proposed by considering the balance of the hydration products of cement and expansive additive and the stress redistribution phenomenon of hydration products newly generated by the progress of hydration. The creep of mortar and concrete mixed with the expansive additive was evaluated using a composite model of the paste and aggregate. Under the assumption that the modeled creep deformation is proportional to the stress and the gel volume of the hydration products, which allows the law of superposition to be applied, the distribution stress was predicted by applying the step-by-step method at each time increment. By predicting the maximum tensile stress applied to an inner steel ring through a creep analysis based on the measured deformation of the inner steel ring, it is possible to predict the stress progression with age to some degree.
