High Performance Concrete Mixtures for Durability

Sep 01, 1993  The paper provides guidelines for the development of concrete mixtures that will function in an aggressive environment. Performance will be based upon durability and not high strength. In few cases will strength greater than 5000 psi (34.4 MPa) be of structural value.

DURABILITY OF HIGH PERFORMANCE CONCRETE

(SCM) has become an integral part of high strength and high performance concrete mix design. The addition of SCM to concrete reduces the heat of hydration and extends the service life in structures by improving both long term durability and strength. Some of the commonly used SCMs are Flyash, Silica fume, Blast furnace slag and Metakaoline.
