Abstract:Briefly reviews five joint industry-research programs pertaining to offshore concrete structures. These programs were sponsored by the oil and gas industry and related construction industries. These studies, conducted in both North America and Norway, included the use of high-strength, lightweight aggregate concretes in both material and structural evaluations. Selected characteristics of the high-strength, lightweight aggregate concretes used in these studies (such as ductility in reinforced concrete elements, punching shear behavior, and fatigue characteristics) are summarized. Future research needs are discussed.
