Editors: John Ries & Thomas Holm


This Symposium Publication contains a compilation of papers that address high-performance structural lightweight concrete in a wide range of global construction applications. Topics include microstructural issues (autogenous shrinkage and internal curing), material and structural properties (transfer length, shear strength, and seismic behavior), and applications in large civil structures (long-span balanced cantilever bridges, offshore platform, and float-in navigational locks).

Keywords: development length; flexural strength; high-performance concrete; lightweight concrete; low-permeability concrete; prestressed concrete bridge beams; structural testing; transfer length
