Development of Nonproprietary Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC)

Project Information

Project ID:
FHWA-PROJ-11-0161
Project Abstract:

This project will develop nonproprietary UHPC mix designs relevant to the U.S. highway sector.

Goals

The objective of this project is to develop nonproprietary UHPC-class materials, which could be locally produced in various regions of the United States. The intent is to use locally or regionally available constituent materials, thus reducing the overall cost of the concrete. Additionally, this project is to identify, and include within the test program, at least three commercialized steel fiber reinforcements. Given the cost of some common constituents in UHPC-class materials, the researchers considered the costs and benefits of each constituent carefully in order to ensure that the final products are both structurally capable and cost effective. The final recommendations from this project must include sufficient information to allow local concrete suppliers to develop nonproprietary mix designs that exhibit UHPC-class material performance.
