Abstract

The current ultimate strength design practice is based on experimental information obtained from concretes of compressive strengths in the range of 21 to 42 Mpa. For developing a satisfactory procedure for design of structures using higher strength concretes, additional considerations, and validation or modification of existing strength design methods may be necessary. In this paper, experimental data on high strength concrete obtained by the authors are reported. In this paper, the emphasis is on the results, comparison with normal strength concrete, development of the empirical formulae and some discussion on the implication for structural design.
