Abstract

This paper summarizes an extensive review of literature that was undertaken to better quantify the term High-Performance Concrete (HPC). Based on a database of 260 HPC mixtures, descriptions of typical HPC characteristics are given. Considered are commonly used constituent materials and their quantities, cementitious material combinations, and performance levels typically achieved. It is illustrated that a quantitative HPC definition as proposed by the FHWA is generally representative of HPC used in the field to date, providing therefore, a rational definition of the material. Against this background, the data reported in this paper provides an approximate trial mixture-proportioning guide for HPC.
