High Performance Concrete can be seen of as a natural progression from Cement Concrete, where the elements are balanced and chosen to effectively contribute to the many features of Cement Concrete in both the fresh and hardened phases. One of High Performance Concrete's characteristics that offers important structural advantages is higher strength. Concrete, steel reinforcement, and formwork make up the three main expenses for a structural member. This study compares these important elements when higher-grade concrete is used in the design, with the goal of demonstrating that high strength concrete offers the most cost-effective solution for designing load-bearing members and for carrying a vertical load to the building foundation through columns. The water-cementitious material ratio, total cementitious material, cement-admixture ratio, and amount of super plasticizer dosage are the mix design elements that have the greatest impact on concrete strength. To create a higher-grade concrete mix, these variables need to be examined.
