These inconsistencies are associated with different causes, i.e. model uncertainty,uncertain input parameters, measurement errors and wrongfully applying creep prediction modelsoutside their limitations. First, the physical mechanism causing creep of concrete is not yet fullyunderstood. Therefore, it is very likely that certain influences on creep of concrete are not consideredin these prediction models, resulting in systematic model errors. The model errors can be quantifiedby comparing prediction results with experimental data. Secondly, the stochastic character of the inputparameters form an additional source of uncertainty which can be quantified by the variance of themodel response. The coefficient of variation in function of time-duration, i.e. the time since the applicationof the load, is a useful measure to quantify the level of uncertainty. In the literature, statistical analysisby means of numerical simulations are often used for this matter. However, even for specializedsampling techniques, a large amount of samples is necessary to cover the relevant ranges of various inputparameters. The aim of the present study is to provide an approximate uncertainty quantification of thecreep prediction models given uncertain input parameters. This approximation is based on a Taylor seriesapproach. This approach has the advantage that is does not require numerical simulations nor does itrequire the knowledge of the probability density function of the input parameters. This method is evaluatedand compared with the statistical analysis for several creep prediction models available in literatureand design codes. ER -Download RIS file
