Abstract:High Strength High Performance Concrete (HSC/HPC) has been used in a number of projects in several countries. Research on HSC/HPC is currently in progress in a number of centres. The author and his research team at Curtin University have conducted research on the behaviour and the strength of HSC/HPC structural members. The research comprised experimental and analytical studies on columns under eccentric compression, structural walls subjected to horizontal and vertical loads, bond strength and bar splice lengths, shear strength of beams, concrete filled steel tubular composite columns, and long-term deflection of flexural members. The test specimens were made using the HSC/HPC supplied by a commercial readymix plant in Perth, Western Australia. The research was funded by Australian Research Council Large Grants and by the industry. This paper presents a summary of the results obtained from the research and recommendations for design. .
