  • High

    High-strength concrete is typically recognized as concrete with a 28-day cylinder compressive strength greater than 6000 psi or 42 Mpa. More generally, concrete with a uniaxial compressive strength greater than that typically obtained in a given geographical region is considered high-strength, although the preceding values are widely recognized.

  • Types of Concrete Characteristics

    Feb 14, 2017Compressive strength of high strength concrete mix is usually greater than 6,000 pounds per square inch.. High strength concrete is made by lowering the water cement (W/C) ratio to 0.35 or lower. Often silica fume is added to prevent the formation of free calcium hydroxide crystals in the cement, which might reduce the strength at the cement aggregate bond.
