Shrinkage phenomena represent an important issue for cementitious materials. There are several procedures able to reduce shrinkage phenomena, in particular, external and internal curing. The latter consider the possibility to add water reservoir that are able to release water during the curing period. In this study, porous plastic aggregates were used as internal curing water reservoir.
