Abstract:
This paper reports on the latest application of high-strength concrete / high-performance concrete in Germany. High-strength concrete has been used especially for the construction of high-rise buildings. The increased application of high-strength concrete led to the DAfStb guideline for the technology and dimensional design of high-strength concrete in Germany. Special attention is focused on the improvement of ductility of high-strength concrete.
