The fine bond behaviour between steel shape and concrete is the base of their cooperation. For designing high strength and high performance concrete (HSHPC) applied to steel reinforced concrete (SRC) structures, a mathematical model of multi-objective and nonlinear optimization is established based on the bond-slip theory between steel shape and concrete, which takes the materials' cost and bond strength as objective functions, and takes the other performance indexes of HSHPC as constraint conditions. Optimal mix design is implemented with an application of convergent sequential quadratic programming and based on Matlab language. The optimized concrete mix proportions can satisfy all the specifications, and especially can raise the bond strength between steel shape and concrete and reduce unit cost of HSHPC.
Key words: SRC structure / HSHPC / mix proportion / optimization / multi-objective.
