      High Performance concreteIf concrete is considered in terms of its water/binder ratio, a high-performance concrete is a concrete having a low water/binder how low?A value of about is suggested as the boundary between usualconcretes and high performance value, which might be perceived as being totally arbitrary. ). High-performance concrete has been primarily used in tunnels, bridges, and tall buildings for its strength, dura-bility, and high modulus of elasticity (Fig. ). It has also been used in shotcrete repair, poles, parking garages, and agricultural applications. High .

      Title: ACI Defines High-Performance Concrete Author(s): Henry G. Russell Publication: Concrete International Volume: 21 Issue: 2 Appears on pages(s): Keywords: durability; high-performance concretes; specifications; strength criteria Date: 2/1/ Abstract: Ever since the terminology "high-performance concrete" (HPC) was introduced into the industry, there have been Cited by: For the production of a high-performance concrete (HPC) matrix, a large amount of binder is normally used. The production of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) as the binder of concrete accounts for 7%.

      High Performance Concrete • The development of high performance concrete (HPC) is a giant step in making concrete a high-tech material with enhanced characteristics and durability. High performance concrete is an engineered concrete obtained through a careful selection and proportioning of its constituents.

The use of high performance concrete has steadily increased throughout the world, particularly in the construction of tall buildings and bridges. This book features an explanation of the effect of material properties on the structural design and performance of concrete.

Using high-strength concrete (or high-performance concrete) with a low w/b ratio in structural applications is more sustainable than normal strength concrete. For example, as shown by Aïtcin and Mindess (), a concrete column made with 75 MPa concrete would use half as much cement, and only a third as much aggregate, as the same.

Civil infrastructures, especially works related to water storage (cisterns, aqueducts) required a high-performance material and a special technology.

The technology of this first Roman cement analogue was known under the generic technical term of Opus Signinum obtained by blending crushed and sieved ceramic, in Latin testa, with lime.

10 rows  This book provides the state of the art on recent progress in the high-performance concrete Cited by: 5. High-Performance Concrete is more brittle as compared to Normal Strength Concrete (NSC), especially when high strength is the main criteria. Ductility in case of high-performance concrete can be improved by applying a confining pressure on HPC.

Inthe first international workshop on high performance fiber reinforced cement composites (HPFRCC) was held in Mainz, Germany [Reinhardt and Naaman ]. For highway pavement applications, concretes with early strength are attractive for potential use in repair and rehabilitation with a view towards early opening of traffic.

High-performance concrete (HPC) is concrete that has been designed to be more durable and, if necessary, stronger than conventional concrete. HPC mixtures are composed of essentially the same materials as conventional concrete mixtures, but the proportions are designed, or engineered, to provide the strength and durability needed for the structural and environmental requirements of the.
