Life-Cycle Cost Analysis of Ultra High-Performance Concrete (UHPC) in Retrofitting Techniques For ABC Project

This research will develop a life-cycle cost performance-based methodology to incorporate Ultra High-Performance Concrete (UHPC) applications in retrofitting techniques for ABC projects. Life-expectancy models will be developed for LifeCycle Cost Analysis (LCCA), and a case study will evaluate the applicability of the methodology. The main objective is to quantify the potential benefits of UHPC applications in long-term maintenance strategies for ABC projects. Products from this research will support management decisions at the network and project level. It is expected that the use of new materials and timely maintenance strategies will increase the life expectancy of bridges using ABC systems.
