Abstract:
This guide presents general methods for selecting mixture proportions for high-strength concrete and optimizing these mixture proportions on the basis of trial batches. The methods are limited to high-strength concrete containing portland cement and fly ash, silica fume, or slag cement(formerly referenced as ground-granulated blast-furnace slag) and produced using conventional materials and production techniques. Recommendations and tables are based on current practice and information provided by contractors, concrete suppliers, and engineers who have been involved in projects dealing with high-strength concrete.
