Abstract Serviceability and strength of concrete structures have been a topic of intense research for many years. Reported herein is the work conducted in this area, especially in the past decade, which ranges from the development of the layered finite element method and the associated theoretical studies to elaborate laboratory tests of highstrength concrete elements. In particular, serviceability studies reviewed include natural frequency, cracking and crack patterns, deflection and damping characteristics; strength investigations reviewed cover beams, slabs and walls, as well as the punching shear strength of flat plates. A long-term on-site study of column shortening in an 80-storey residential building recently completed at Gold Coast in Southeast Queensland, Australia is also reported. In addition, a separate section discusses the serviceability studies specific for high-strength concrete structures. Summarized herein is the review of research findings published during the period spanning mainly from 1995 to 2005. Relevant formulas and analytical procedures which may assist practising engineers in the design of concrete structures are reported for completion.
