Proceedings of the First International Conference on High Strength Concrete, held in Kona, Hawaii, July 13-18, 1997. Sponsored by the United Engineering Foundation.
This collection contains 51 papers on high strength concrete (HSC), ranging from material aspects to applications in the field. Rapid transfer of HSC to the marketplace in the 1980s and the simultaneous lack of research data led to severe code limitations imposed on the use of this material. The late 1980s and early 1990s saw intense activity to resolve design issues related to HSC and the replacement of code limitations with more rational provisions. With the increased use of HSC, owners and designers also became more interested in its long-term performance, and the term "high strength concrete" began to appear in the literature. These papers reflect the historical trend in the development of high strength concrete and its utilization in construction.
- the behavior of interior beam-and-column subassemblages in a reinforced concrete frame,
- ductility and strength of HSC columns,
- shear strength of HSC beams,
- seismic behavior of prestressed concrete beam-column joints,
- crack growth and cyclic loads, and
- thermal performance of HSC.
Papers focus specifically on high strength concrete, as opposed to high performance concrete.
