    National Precast Concrete Association • 3 INTRODUCTION A s a material on the leading edge of concrete innovation, ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) provides a new technology to expand a precaster’s business with new products and solutions. The material’s combination of superior. ). High-performance concrete has been primarily used in tunnels, bridges, and tall buildings for its strength, dura-bility, and high modulus of elasticity (Fig. ). It has also been used in shotcrete repair, poles, parking garages, and agricultural applications. High-performance concrete characteristics are devel-.

      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. The first reinforced concrete high-rise was the story Ingalls Building, completed in Cincinnati in Greater building height became possible as concrete strength increased. In the s, 34 MPa ( psi) was considered high strength; by , two high-rise buildings were constructed in Seattle using concrete with strengths of up toFile Size: 1MB.

    For example, Self- compacting Concrete is a specific part of High Performance Concrete, which distinguishes itself with self-consolidation properties coupled with high flowability. Table 1 shows the Properties and Areas of application of High Performance Concretes. Table 1a shows some properties and areas of Application of HPCs.   High Performance Concrete(HPC) Possessing high workability, high durability and high ultimate strength. As per ACI, HPC is defined as a concrete meeting special combination of performance and uniformity requirements that cannot always be achieved routinely using conventional constituents and normal mixing, placing, and curing practices.

Their high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios are the main material characteristics that attract the attention of the structural and design engineers. Advanced Mechanics of Composite Materials and Structural Elements helps ensure that researchers and engineers can continue to innovate in this vital field.

Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) is defined as ‘concrete that has a minimum specified compressive strength of MPa with specified durability tensile ductility and tough­ness requirements; fibers are generally included to achieve specified requirements”, as per ACI RThe term high-performance concrete (HPC) is relatively new, and it refers to many properties such as strength, durability, sound and heat insulation, waterproofing, and side advantages such as air purification, self-cleaning, etc.

Researchers and engineers are constantly working for improving concrete properties. This book provides the state of Cited by: 5.normal type concrete, such concrete is regarded as high performance concrete (HPC).

Three of the key attributes to HPC are discussed in this paper. They are: strength, ductility and durability. In order to know the intrinsic differences between normal type concrete and high performance concrete, micro-structure and composition of HPC are studied.
