High-strength concretes are used frequently in applications requiring slender members to carry large loads or span long distances. Early applications of high-strength concrete emphasized its use to reduce column dimensions. More recently, high-strength concrete has been used to meet special project objectives such as large composite columns and stiffer structures. In turn, the use of high-strength concrete has prompted the applications of more stringent quality control requirements. This publication highlights the use, design implications, and research results of applications of high-strength concrete.
