    The main non-linear phenomena that govern the deformational behavior of early-age concrete are the evolution of the stiffness properties, the development of thermal strains, creep and cracking. A general approach for numerically simulating this type of behaviour is presented, followed by a concise treatment of the algorithm used for the combination of thermal strains, creep and smeared cracking.
