Abstract

The use of high strength concrete (HSC) is increasing faster than the development of a suitable design recommendation, as this new material has become a viable alternative to normal strength concrete (NSC). The authors endeavour to establish a suitable and distinct design criteria in the context of HSC element based on the stress-strain characteristics of HSC beams subjected to pure flexural loads. Test series included concrete strength ranging from 70 MPa to 120 MPa used as a structural elements with various reinforcements. The model analysis results are verified with experimental measurements of the stress-strain distributions. The paper also examines the applicability of the existing design methods in cases where concrete strengths are far beyon
