Development of Green High Performance Concrete


Article Preview

As the world's largest building materials production, the mechanical properties of concrete prominent and construction is simple, inexpensive features. Concrete production and construction sectors also exists a very serious problem of environmental pollution, people have to consider how to enhance the environmental protection of concrete, namely, the production and use of "green concrete". Since the past one-sided pursuit of high strength concrete, while ignoring the the durability issues brought a series of questions, allowing people to put forward the concept of a high-performance concrete. The paper by exploring the current development of high-performance green concrete, summary of the proposed method to achieve green high performance concrete.
