Structural Behavior of Ultra-High Performance Concrete

The objective of the proposed project is to develop knowledge pertinent to the structural performance of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). This knowledge will be of significant value as the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Committee on Bridges and Structures considers the use of UHPC-class materials in highway bridges and structures. The proposed project is focused on the design, fabrication, performance, and analysis of UHPC components. It is anticipated that various UHPC components will be designed, fabricated, and tested. The test results will be analyzed and used to inform proposed structural design guidance for UHPC components. Results will also be used to support usage of UHPC by interested departments of transportation. It is anticipated that bridge superstructure components (e.g., pretensioned girders) will be a significant part of this study, with behaviors related to flexure, shear, and end zones being investigated. Other components may be investigated based on available resources and the interest of participating partners.
