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.
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
Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) is a cementitious, concrete material that has a minimum specified compressive strength of 21,500 pounds per square inch (psi). UHPC is stronger and more resilient than traditional concrete due to fibers that are integrated into the mix. Fibers vary from polyester to steel and stainless steel, with different types of fibers
Cor-Tuf UHPC is excited to announce it is the exclusive licensed producer of Cor-Tuf Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in the United States and the world. Cor-Tuf UHPC is an extremely strong and durable new concrete material developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (US patent No. US 8016938 B2) to fill a demand for
Concrete is considered by many to be a strong and durable material, and rightfully so. But there are different ways to assess concrete strength.
