Abstract:A high-performance concrete may posses satisfactory performance in many aspects other than compressive strength. In the context of in situ strength development, the performance of concrete at an early age is important. The temperature development, resistance to thermal cracking, early age engineering properties, and in situ strength development may all play a significant role in insuring satisfactory long-term performance. Describes the engineering properties of some very high-strength and high-performance concretes containing blast furnace slag with compressive strengths in excess of 80 Mpa under simulated "in situ" conditions of restricted moist curing and high-hydration temperatures. The influence of blast furnace slag content and the implications of the in situ development of engineering properties on performance are discussed.
