In this article the question of the influence of the kinetics of hardening concrete on its strength in building structures through the stress function. Determined a direct correlation between the optimal structure of concrete and a guarantee of high strength and durability of building structures that ensured a coincidence given the amounts and extreme properties. A method for predicting the elastic properties of concrete based on known theory of strength of concrete model. It is shown by way of

The proposed method is the most convenient for practical approximation to obtain the equations of mechanical state to determine the total deformation of concrete.
