Concrete is considered by many to be a strong and durable material, and rightfully so. But there are different ways to assess concrete strength.
Tilt-up construction is one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States, with more than 15 percent of industrial buildings in the US built with this method. It’s no surprise that this innovative method of construction is becoming so popular; there are many advantages in terms of cost and time on any given project.
There are 614,387 bridges in the United States, and almost 40 percent of them are more than 50 years old. Many of these bridges are showing their age, with more than 9 percent of bridges classified as structurally deficient according to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 2017 Infrastructure Report Card.
Every Day Counts (EDC) is a program started by the US Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to encourage innovation in transportation construction projects at the state and local levels.
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.
