Figure Pretensioning sequence for prestressing concrete 1. Nowadays, with the development of prestressed concrete, long-span bridges, tall buildings, and ocean structures have been constructed. The Barrios de Lura Bridge in Spain is currently the longest-span prestressed concrete, cable-stayed bridge in the world, with a main span of m. In Canada, the prestressed Toronto CN tower reaches a height of m. As a structural material, the compressive strength at an age of 28 days is the main design index for concrete. There are several reasons for choosing compressive strength as the representative index.

For this reason, concrete with high performance to meet the requirement of prolonging concrete service life was greatly needed. Due to the large amount of silica fume incorporated in such a material, it was initially called reactive powder concrete and later on changed to ultra-high-strength performance concrete UHSC , due to its extremely high compressive strength Richard and Cheyrezy, The ultra-high-strength concrete has reached a compressive strength of MPa 1.
Water-reducing admixtures can plasticize fresh concrete mixtures by reducing surface tension of the water.
Air-entraining admixtures can improve the durability of concrete, and mineral admixtures such as pozzolans materials containing reactive silica can reduce thermal cracking. A detailed description of admixtures is given in Chapter 2. Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world, and its popularity can be attributed to two aspects.
First, concrete is used for many different structures, such as dams, pavements, building frames, or bridges, much more than any other construction material. Second, the amount of concrete used is much more than any other material. Its worldwide production exceeds that of steel by a factor of 10 in tonnage and by more than a factor of 30 in volume.
In a concrete structure, there are two commonly used structural materials: concrete and steel. A structural material is a material that carries not only its self-weight, but also the load passing from other members.
Thus, the designer of a steel structure need only specify the steel complying with a relevant standard, and the constructor needs only to ensure that the correct steel is used and that connections between the individual steel members are properly executed Neville and Brooks, On the other hand, concrete is produced in a cruder way and its quality varies considerably. Even the quality of cement, the binder of concrete, is guaranteed by the manufacturer in a manner similar to that of steel; however, the quality of concrete is hardly guaranteed because of many other factors, such as aggregates, mixing procedures, and skills of the operators of concrete production, placement, and consolidation.
It follows that they must be thoroughly conversant with the properties of concrete and with concrete making and placing. In a concrete structure, concretes mainly carry the compressive force and shear force, while the steel carries the tension force.
Moreover, concrete usually provides stiffness for structures to keep them stable. Concretes have been widely used to build various structures.
High-strength concrete has been used in many tall building constructions. In Hong Kong, grade 80 concrete 80 MPa was utilized in the columns of the tallest building in the region. As shown in Figure , the story International Finance Centre was built in and stands m ft tall. Concrete has also been used in bridge construction. It is a cable-stayed bridge with the longest main span, meters, in the world.
Its two side spans are m ft each, and there are also four small cable spans.
