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.
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.
At the Capital Grille restaurant, there is a side dish on the menu called Lobster Mac ‘N’ Cheese. For $20, you can get an order to your table delivered in a small cast-iron skillet
If you’ve ever wondered, “What is the difference between concrete and cement?” you’re in luck.
The terms concrete and cement are often used interchangeably. But the truth is, they are not the same. In fact, that “cement” truck many of us refer to on a job site is actually a misnomer—it is really a “concrete” truck.
Concrete is used by contractors and builders for bridges and seawalls due to its strength and durability. Unfortunately, seawalls made of traditional concrete are not immune to the effects of seawater, and bridges constructed of regular concrete are proving to be incapable of withstanding the damaging winds and forces of hurricanes and other strong storms.
Cor-Tuf UHPC, the first and only licensed producer of Cor-Tuf Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in the United States and the world, is making it easier
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.
