Most of us in the construction industry are very familiar with pilings. Two of the most common types of piles are concrete piles and steel piles. While these two types of piles are very different, each offers certain advantages over the other.
Blast-Resistant Concrete: How Using UHPC in Infrastructure Projects Saves Lives and Increases Security
Disturbing as it may be, security is something we now grapple with on a daily basis. Protection from both intruders and blasts have now become part of the planning and design process in many infrastructure projects, from buildings to bridges and beyond.
As the advantages of Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) become more well-known in the concrete and construction industries, it becomes even more important for builders and
As we continue to complete more projects with our proprietary Ultra-High Performance Concrete mix design, we are thrilled to see that Cor-Tuf UHPC continues to meet and even exceed our expectations. In our latest project, we demonstrated the advantages of using Cor-Tuf UHPC in a typical bridge closure project.
At Cor-Tuf, we are committed to continuing to push the boundaries of what concrete can do. For example, we recently introduced our 18”x18”x100’ Cor-Tuf Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) square piling to the market.
We have written in the past about some of the revolutionary uses for Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in bridges, overlays, and other major infrastructure projects. While these are still valuable applications for UHPC, we want to shift our attention and expand your view on when UHPC is an ideal choice.
At Cor-Tuf, we are always looking for ways to test and maximize the characteristics of our proprietary Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC). We have already shown through previous tests the amazing strength and durability benefits of this new concrete technology. We have also shown the advantages of Cor-Tuf UHPC over other conventional UHPC concrete mixes.
