Production of effective building materials of high-density and high-durability is connected with the development of methods of modification of such materials on macro-, micro- and nanostructural levels. Presently the application of finest ingredients in admixture compositions such as limestone filler produced from local quarries is viewed as a primary task of cost reduction in limestone concrete manufacturing. The efficiency of limestone filler to enhance the durability of fine-grained limestone concrete is shown in tests performed. Limestone half inert filler conjointly with superplasticizer are found to enhance crack-resistance and reduces creep strains, which makes fine-grained limestone concrete the most effective and long-standing material. Knowledge of the stress-strain distribution in concrete with limestone fines under compression is important for the design of certain kinds of reinforced thin-walled concrete structures, such as shells, membranes and domes. These structures are manufactured with addition of both limestone filler and superplasticizer performing synergetic effect which leads to increasing a level of crack causing stresses.
