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.
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.

Believe it or not, concrete overlays have been in use in the U.S. for more than a century, with the first use dating back to the early 1900’s. Concrete overlays were first used to build new highways and roads in our country, but later on the focus changed to using overlays as a cost-effective way to extend the life of roads and bridges that were past their prime.
