Many recent innovations in advanced concrete materials technology have made it possible to produce concrete with exceptional performance characteristics. High Performance Concrete (HPC) is defined as concrete which meets special performance and uniformity requirements that cannot always be achieved by using only the conventional materials and normal mixing, placing and curing practices. The performance requirements may involve enhancements of: placement and compaction without segregation, long-term mechanical properties, early-age strength, toughness, volume stability, or service life in servere environments. International Workshop on High Performance Concrete addresses technical papers presented during the workshop. A total of 32 papers are included and cover subjects including: * Self-compactable high-performance concrete in Japan * Durability of DSP mortars exposed to conditions of wetting and drying * Ferrocement: Applications for urban environment * Studies of high-performance concrete structural members * High performance and durability through design * United States government's role in high-performance materials for infrastructure * Tensile properties of high-performance concrete * High-performance concretes for highway applications * Bending properties of high early strength fiber reinforced concrete * High-strength concrete research for buildings and bridges Note: The individual papers are also available as .pdf downloads..
