    Comparing High Strength and Performance Concrete individually

    by  • April 23, 2014 • concrete • 0 Comments

    High-Strength versus High Performance Concrete High strength concrete and high-performance concrete are not synonymous because strength and performance of concrete are different properties of concrete. High-strength concrete is defined based on its compressive strength at a given age. During 1970s, any concrete mixtures which showed 40 MPa or more compressive strength at 28 days were...
