    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...

    Desgin of LIGHT WEIGHT CONCRETE

    Mix design methods applying to normal weight concrete are generally difficult to use with light weight aggregate concrete. The lack of accurate value of absorption, specific gravity, and the free moisture content in the aggregate make it difficult to apply the water/cement ratio accurately for mix proportioning. Light-weight concrete mix design is usually established...
