Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) based Structural Engineering Solutions
March 8, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Ultra High-Performance Concrete (UHPC) is a cementitious material that has minimum 18 ksi compressive strength and significantly more tensile strength (more than 1 ksi) tensile strength, as compared to conventional concrete. UHPC provides possible new horizon to be innovative and provide economical solutions for many structural challenges. UHPC has gained popularity in bridge engineering. However, its application to building structures has lagged behind. Nevertheless, application of UHPC in bridge engineering, provides glimpse of many benefits it offers for building applications. This presentation will mainly present UHPC based solutions in bridge engineering.
