High performance concrete (HPC) is a specialized series of concrete designed to provide several benefits in the construction of concrete structures that cannot always be achieved routinely using conventional ingredients, normal mixing and curing practices. In the other words a high performance concrete is a concrete in which certain characteristics are developed for a particular application and environment, so that it will give excellent performance in the structure in which it will be placed, in the environment to which it will be exposed, and with the loads to which it will be subjected during its design life.

Selected Properties of HighPerformance Concrete Property Test Method Criteria that may be specified High Strength ASTM C 39 70-140 MPa @ 28 to 91 days H-E Comp. Strength ASTM C 39 20-30 MPa @ 3-12 hrs or 1-3 days H-E Flex. Strength ASTM C 78 2-4 MPa @ 3-12 hrs or 1-3 days Abrasion Resistance ASTM C 944 0-1 mm depth of wear Low Permeability ASTM C 1202 500 to 2000 coulombs Chloride Penetration AASHTO T 259/260 Less than 0.07% Cl at 6 months Low Absorption ASTM C 642 2% to 5% High Mod.of Elast. ASTM C 469 More than 40 GPa

High-Early-Strength Concrete  High-early compressive strength ASTM C 39 (AASHTO T 22) 20 to 28 MPa (3000 to 4000 psi) at 3 to 12 hours or 1 to 3 days  High-early flexural strength ASTM C 78 (AASHTO T 97) 2 to 4 MPa (300 to 600 psi) at 3 to 12 hours or 1 to 3 days

High-Early-Strength Concrete May be achieved by —  Type III or HE high-early-strength cement  High cement content 400 to 600 kg/m3 (675 to 1000 lb/yd3)  Low water-cementing materials ratio (0.20 to 0.45 by mass)  Higher freshly mixed concrete temperature  Higher curing temperature

High-Early-Strength Concrete May be achieved by —  Chemical admixtures  Silica fume (or other SCM)  Steam or autoclave curing  Insulation to retain heat of hydration  Special rapid hardening cements

High-Strength Concrete  90% of ready-mix concrete 20 MPa - 40 MPa (3000 – 6000 psi) @ 28-d (most 30 MPa – 35 MPa)  High-strength concrete by definition — 28 day – compr. strength 70 MPa (10,000 psi)

High-Strength Concrete Materials Aggregates —  9.5 - 12.5 mm (3/8 - 1/2 in.) nominal maximum size gives optimum strength  Combining single sizes for required grading allows for closer control and reduced variability in concrete  For 70 MPa and greater, the FM of the sand should be 2.8 – 3.2. (lower may give lower strengths and sticky mixes)

High-Strength Concrete Materials Supplementary Cementing Materials —  Fly ash, silica fume, or slag often mandatory  Dosage rate 5% to 20% or higher by mass of cementing material. High-Value Concrete

High-Strength Concrete Materials Admixtures —  Use of water reducers, retarders, HRWRs, or superplasticizers — mandatory in high-strength concrete  Air-entraining admixtures not necessary or desirable in protected high-strength concrete.  Air is mandatory, where durability in a freezethaw environment is required (i.e.. bridges, piers, parking structures)  Recent studies:  w/cm ≥ 0.30—air required  w/cm < 0.25—no air needed

High-Strength Concrete Placing, Consolidation, and Curing  Delays in delivery and placing must be eliminated  Consolidation very important to achieve strength  Slump generally 180 to 220 mm (7 to 9 in.)  Little if any bleeding—fog or evaporation retarders have to be applied immediately after strike off to minimize plastic shrinkage and crusting  7 days moist curing

High-Durability Concrete  1970s and 1980s focus on — High-Strength HPC  Today focus on concretes with high durability in severe environments resulting in structures with long life — High-Durability HPC

High-Durability Concrete Durability Issues That HPC Can Address  Abrasion Resistance  Blast Resistance  Permeability  Carbonation  Freeze-Thaw Resistance  Chemical Attack  Alkali-Silica Reactivity  Corrosion rates of rebar

Self-Consolidating Concrete Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) also known as self-compacting concrete — flows and consolidates on its own  developed in 1980s — Japan  Increased amount of  Fine material (i.e. fly ash or limestone filler)  HRWR/Superplasticizers  Strength and durability same as conventional concrete
