Abstract:In 1989, the Strategic Highway Research Program contracted with North Carolina State University to investigate the use of High Performance Concrete in highway applications. A major goal of this research project was to determine if HPC mixtures could be successfully produced in the field. In addition, an evaluation was to be made of the long-term performance of this material under field service conditions. Five field installations were constructed around the country for this purpose. The fresh and hardened properties of the concrete were found to be generally acceptable at each site. Some cracking has developed in a few sections. A set of recommendations with regard to the use of HPC in the field was developed as a result of the field work.
