Abstract: This proceedings, High Strength Concrete, consists of papers presented at the first Engineering Foundation Conference on High Strength Concrete, held July 13-18, 1997, in Kona, Hawaii. The conference brought together a group of individuals known for their contributions to high strength concrete (HSC), from material aspects to applications in the field. Since the 1980s, intense research activities have been conducted to resolve design issues related to the use of HSC. These papers explore such issues as the behavior of interior beam-and-column subassemblages in a reinforced concrete frame, ductility and strength of HSC columns, shear strength of HSC beams, seismic behavior of prestressed concrete beam-column joints, crack growth and cyclic loads, and thermal performance of HSC.
