    • Abstract:
      This document is a sequel to a previous bibliography which was compiled by the authors in 1989 as the first part of their research on high performance concrete sponsored by the Strategic Highway Research Program of the National Research Council. The previous bibliography was based on an extensive literature search to identify gaps in the existing knowledge on the subject and covered a period of 15 years beginning in 1974. Emphasis was placed on the strength development and durability of concrete with particular reference to highway applications.A total of 776 citations are included in this document covering the six-year period from 1989 to 1994. In selecting the entries for the present volume, the authors have been guided by the broad definition of high performance concrete as adopted by the American Concrete Institute. High performance concrete is defined as concrete which meets special performance and uniformity requirements that cannot always be achieved routinely by using only conventional materials and normal mixing, placing, and curing practices. The requirements may involve enhancements of characteristics such as placement and compaction without segregation, long-term mechanical properties, early-age strength, toughness, volume stability, or service life in severe environments.This bibliography is divided into two sections. Most entries in Section I relate to plain concrete with some citations on the use of high performance concrete in bridges, pavements, and other structural members. Section II contains entries on fiber reinforced concrete. An author index and a subject index for each section are provided at the end of this volume. TRIS and COMPENDEX are the principal bibliographical databases from which the citations were obtained by computer search except that, for the second half of 1994, the citations were extracted directly from a variety of publications including books, technical journals, conference proceedings, and research reports.
