In May of 1993, approximately twenty researchers and five representatives from construction firms met in Kyoto, Japan, for the First Multilateral Meeting on Structural Performance of High-Strength Concrete in Seismic Regions. Four countries (United States, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia) were representated at the meeting. The 3-day meeting divided into eight sessions covering current research programs and applications of high-strength concrete in the respective countries. The objectives of the meeting were to exchange information and to develop a coordinated program for further information exchange, evaluation of information, and development of design guidelines for the use of high-strength concrete in seismic regions.

The follow-up meeting was held in November 1994 in Honolulu, Hawaii, and was attended by twenty seven participants from the US, Japan, Canada, New Zealand and Hong Kong. The Second Multilateral Meeting on Structural Performance of High-Strength Concrete in Seismic Regions consisted of thirteen sessions. Six of the sessions concentrated on the following behavioral topics: bond and anchorage, confinement, flexural members, axially-loaded members (columns and walls), beam-column joints, and shear and torsion. An additional session was devoted to presentation and discussion of design concepts and applications of high-strength concrete (HSC) in seismic regions. The remaining six sessions consisted of large and small working group sessions. During the small group sessions, participants were divided into groups of five to ten members to discuss the results of the previous sessions. Summaries of the small working group were then presented to the entire group fro additional comments and conclusion during the large working group sessions.

This ACI Symposium Publication comprises selected papers which were the outcome of the Second Multilateral Meeting on Structural Performance of High-Strength Concrete in Seismic Regions. The working group discussion summaries are also included in this special publication. The editors are appreciative of the eforts of the authors and reviewers of these papers. The cooperation of the authors in the careful revision of their papers in accordance with the reviewers' comments is greatly appreciated.
