Abstract:
The studies reported were concerned with the application of high-strength concrete to structural members as related to some aspects of their design, construction and behavior. With regard to construction, tests were performed on the consistencies and strengths of concretes of low water-cement ratios using superplasticizers. The superplasticizers used were the 5 brands being marketed in Japan. The influence on consistency of fineness of cement was also studied. In examinations made by design calculations, monorail piers were used as case studies. The relation between concrete strength and cross-sectional dimensions, and quality of reinforcing bars required when applying high-strength concrete to structural members were investigated. In structural tests, the stresses, bending strengths and ductilities of model piers using high-strength concrete were studied.
