This book contains the proceedings from the First Engineering Foundation Conference on High Strength Concrete, held in July 1997 in Kona, Hawaii. This conference represents a milestone in bringing together experts known for their contributions to High Strength Concrete, from material aspects to applications in the field. Rapid transfer of High Strength Concrete 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. This followed in the late 1980s and early 1990s with intense activity to resolve design issues related to High Strength Concrete and the replacement of code limitations with more rational provisions. The papers in this book reflect this historical trend in the development of High Strength Concrete and its utilization in construction. With the increased use of High Strength Concrete, owners and designers also became more interested in the long term performance of certain types of High Strength Concrete, and the term High Performance Concrete began to appear in the literature. The papers in this volume focus specifically on High Strength Concrete as opposed to High Performance Concrete, and bring together the most current thinking and state-of-the-art information on this topic.
