This presentation will discuss Ultra-High-Performance Concrete and the potential to replace conventional concrete in large-scale building and infrastructure applications:
- Explore the evolution of UHPC and an overview of the unique material characteristics.
- Learn how UHPC has the ability to be cost competitive on a first-cost basis while being far more valuable than conventional concrete on a life-cycle basis.
- Understand how UHPC benefits can provide for longer life cycles, more efficient material use, improved safety and space utilization, longer spans and reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
- Discover ongoing PCI implementation challenges which include cost and development of UHPC structural systems to capitalize on its unique characteristics.
