Paper Title:
The Modulus of Elasticity of High-Strength Concrete
  Abstract

The paper discusses the modulus of elasticity of plain concrete for a wide range of compressive strength. A large volume of selected experimental data has been collected from existing literature and then analyzed. Particular emphasis has been given to studying the effects of concrete compressive strength and the type of coarse aggregate on the modulus of elasticity of plain concrete. The adequacy and applicability of the existing models for predicting the modulus of elasticity of high-strength concrete has been critically examined, and a new empirical model is proposed to cover concrete strength up to 125 MPa. The new empirical model seems to perform much better when applied to the published experimental data on normal weight concrete over a wide strength range.
