Description

The use of high performance concrete offers advantages in durability, ease of placement, and reduced creep and shrinkage, as well as increased compressive, shear and tensile strength. Offsetting these advantages are potentially reduced ductility and fire resistance, and increased unit cost. The very dense material structure can as well result in high durability. This makes the material suitable for the design of lightweight slender structures with a long service life, as well as surprising architectural structures.

New applications of HSC have been introduced in the last 2 decades. The trend will continue in the future and many other new applications will be developed. The use of high performance concrete offers advantages in durability, ease of placement, and reduced creep and shrinkage, as well as increased compressive, shear and tensile strength. Offsetting these advantages are potentially reduced ductility and fire resistance, and increased unit cost. In these notes, the use of high performance concrete in practice is reviewed, including HSC in Bridge Code AS 5100 - 2004, Material Consideration in AS 4997 and design provisions required for Maritime Structures Code AS 4997 - 2005.
