Abstract:
The development of commercially available high-strength ready-mixed concrete is reported. . .This report focuses primarily on the selection of a portland cement, the efficient use of chemical admixtures and pozzolans, gradings of fine and coarse aggregate and their proportioning for use in high-strength ready-mixed concrete.
