Part I: Significant Attributes and Mix-Design Methods - A study is made of high-quality high-strength concrete, its significant attributes, mix-design methods, and application of economic-strength designs to bridge members and piles. This Part I first treats of such attributes as consistent density, compressive strength, high-early compressive strength, modulus of elasticity, shrinkage, creep, impermeability, and durability.
