Abstract:
This paper describes some of the important aspects of code requirements for the design of structural members made with high-strength concrete. The provisions of the 1994 CSA Standard for the Design of Concrete Structures are highlighted. Comparisons are made between the provisions of the 1999 ACI Code and the 1994 CSA Standard. Some aspects of design from the 1990 CEB-FIP Model Code and the 1995 New Zealand Standard are also discussed.
