In order to satisfy the technical requirements related to the situation in which the concrete will be used, it is necessary to define some properties related to its fresh and hardened states, and, therefore, it is necessary to use a mix proportion method that provides the adequate proportioning of its components.
From the 10th International Symposium on High Performance Concrete--Innovation & Utilization (HPC 2014), held in September 2014 in Beijing, China, the 89 papers in this collection discuss aspects of high-performance concrete technology, including ultra-high performance concrete, durability and mechanical properties, field performance, fire resistance, sustainability, recycling, special raw materials and concrete composites and additives, self-compacting concrete, structural performance and modeling, mix proportion design and hydration, and testing methods, evaluation, and quality.
Concrete Mixture Proportion: Since in most of the building construction projects a common mix proportion of Cement: Fine Aggregate: Coarse Aggregate = 1: 2: 4 is being used therefore same mix proportion has been adopted in this research work with water/cement ratio of 0.6 for 28-days cylindrical compressive strength for reference/control concrete.
