Recently, the construction of underwater structures has been gradually increased, but underwater concrete got some problems of quality deterioration and water contamination around cast-in-situ of construction. In addition, massive underwater structures such as LNG tank, underwater concrete structures of large and continuous high- strength subterranean wall under water are being demanded lower heat of hydration. In this paper, the mechanical properties of high-strength antiwashout underwater concrete (HAWC) containing with two kinds of mineral admixtures respectively were investigated. On the basis of these results, the pH value and suspended solids of HAWC manufactured in the mock-up test were 10.011.0 and 51 mg/ at 30 minutes later, respectively, initial and final setting time were about 30,37 hours, and the slump flow was 53020Tm. In the placement at a speed of , there was no large difference in flowing velocity with or without reinforcing bar, and flowing slope was maintained at horizontal level. Compressive strength and elastic modulus of the cored specimen somewhat decreased as flowing distance was far; however, those of central area showed the highest value.
