Impact resistance and mechanical properties of High

High Strength Concrete (HSC) is an expression which is used to define a concrete with high performance and strength exceeds 40 MPa. The high elasticity or strength and low shrinkage and permeability are considered the main properties of the HSC. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of High Reactivity Metakaolin (HRM) and/or Silica Fume (SF) on the properties of HSC.

Aggregate Properties You Need to Know: Strength

Durability: Resistance to internal forces resulting from freezing and thawing or wetting and drying cycles, as well as physical wear. This resistance comes from both density (fewer cracks and voids) and strength. Expansive forces generated in voids and fissures can be tremendous and lead to the disintegration of aggregate particles.
