AN EVALUATION OF SOME OF THE FACTORS INVOLVED IN PRODUCING VERY HIGH-STRENGTH CONCRETE

The production of very high-strength concretes requires detailed attention to a number of factors. This report describes work done to evaluate what effects these factors have and what can be done to optimize their contribution to the attainment of very high levels of compressive strength. Studied were the effects of water-cement ratio, type of curing, gradation and mineralogy of aggregates, composition and fineness of cement, and the effect of two admixtures. Areas for future work are suggested.
