High-Strength Concrete (ACI 363R)

Although high-strength concrete is often times still considered a relatively new material, its development has been gradual and continual over the last 50 years. During this period, many notable changes have occurred and continue to occur in the area of high-strength concrete technology, including the definition of high-strength concrete itself. With the increased knowledge that has been gained with respect to material availability, design methodology, and construction techniques, the feasible realm of high-strength concrete applications has grown dramatically. One of the primary objectives of ACI Committee 363 during the last few years has been to update and republish document 363, High-Strength Concrete. This synopsis is based on a full report on high-strength concrete to be published by ACI Committee 363 (High-Strength Concrete). Estimated publication time for the new document is early 2006. The objective of the document is to present state-of-the-art information on concrete with strengths in excess of about 55 MPa (8000 psi), but not including concrete made using exotic materials or techniques.
