. This paper discusses the shrinkage rheological model of high-performance concrete with a compressive strength of 60 MPa. This is based on experimental research in Indonesia. Three specimens measuring 150 mm × 150 mm × 600 mm were used. Specimens were placed in a conditioned room with a temperature of 28 3oC and relative humidity of 72±5%. Observations were conducted over 7–800 days using an embedded vibrating wire strain gauge for each specimen. As a result, the shrinkage rheological model was single or multi Kelvin-Voigt in series with time-dependent disturber flow in it. Disturber flow depends on product hydration growth, weather, pore number, size, and distribution. The model agrees with experimental results. Moreover, it also fits the results using high strength concrete column and high strength self - compacting concrete cylinder.
