ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF VERY HIGH STRENGTH CONCRETE. SECOND NATIONAL STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING CONFERENCE, ADELAIDE, 3-5 OCTOBER 1990; PREPRINTS OF PAPERS

A comprehensive experimental study was carried out at Monash University to investigate the engineering properties of very high strength concrete with compressive strengths in the range of 80 to 120 MPa. The study included the determination of the static modulus of elasticity, direct and indirect tensile strength and flexural strength of very high strength concrete produced using micro silica, locally available aggregate and cement and superplasticisers. Three concrete mix designs were adopted and tests were carried out at three test ages. Test results were obtained for 126 cylinders, 27 beams and 24 direct tensile test specimens. Experimental results are presented along with other established relationships reported for normal and high strength concrete and are compared with values predicted by AS3600. Recommendations are made for relationships between compressive strength and engineering properties of very high strength concrete. For the covering entry of the conference see IRRD 831067.
