A 4-year study, conducted by a consortium of three universities, on the use of high-performance concrete in highway applications was recently completed. A major goal of this research project was to determine if high-performance concrete mixes could be successfully produced in the field. In addition, an evaluation was to be made of the long-term performance of this concrete under field service conditions. Field installations were constructed in five states for this purpose. Paper provides potential users of high-performance concrete with general recommendations and guidelines for production and placement.
