What is High Performance Concrete (HPC)?

High- Performance Concrete (HPC) contains mineral components and chemical admixtures having very specific characteristics, which give specific properties to the concrete.

HPC has achieved the maximum compressive strength in its existing form of microstructure.

The requirements for HPC used for the nuclear waste containment structures of Indian Nuclear Power Plants are normal compressive strength, moderate E value, uniform density, good workability, and high durability.
