What is high strength concrete?
- Concrete with compressive strength more than 55 MPa is known as high strength concrete.
- It is used in the construction of bridges, dams. etc.,
- High strength concrete is produced by adding normal
constituents of concrete with admixtures.

Concrete will react differently according to the temperature experienced. for normal strength concrete nothing will happen at less than 500c but after that it starts losing its strength and cracks will appear will fail from 5-6 hours and it may explode but exploding is less likely to happen but for high strength concrete at a very high 500c-700c it well explode suddenly
