What is it about?

UHPC is a new class of concrete that is flexible, strong and durable. Structural shapes used for conventional concrete is not suitable for designing structures with UHPC. Several examples are shown in this paper and suggestions for future research is provided.

Why is it important?

UHPC is being widely used in specific application. However, there is lackof knowledge as to how and when the use of this material is effective. This paper provides start of knowledge on these topics.


This paper summarizes several projects that have used UHPC effectively in recent years in the U.S..
