STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT AND FINISHING CHARACTERISTICS OF HIGH STRENGTH CONCRETE

A LABORATORY PROGRAM WAS UNDERTAKEN BY THE DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS TO ESTABLISH A CONCRETE MIX DESIGN THAT WOULD ENSURE A 28 DAY COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF 5,000 PER SQUARE INCH. THE RATE OF COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT AND THE LENGTH OF TIME AVAILABLE TO FINISH A CONCRETE SURFACE WERE DETERMINED FOR THIS MIX. ALSO, THE PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE USING TWO TYPES OF CEMENT WERE COMPARED AND FIELD AND LABORATORY RESULTS WERE CORRELATED. /CGRA/
