Discusses the need and requirements for a method of proportioning high-strength concrete mixes. The development of the method, which is based on a well-established method used for conventional concrete, is described. Design charts are given for various stone sizes, and an example of such a chart is illustrated. Because the method is based on easily determined aggregate properties, it is suitable for any type of aggregate: crushed or naturally occurring stone and sand, and graded or single-sized stone.
