Development of Non-Proprietary UHPC Mix – Application to Deck Panel Joints (University of Nevada, Reno)

One of the most common accelerated bridge construction (ABC) applications nowadays is the use of precast deck panels and fill the joints in the field using advanced materials such as ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). A lot of research has been done on optimizing the field joint reinforcement details such as shortest lap length and shear key shape and dimensions. However, most of the applications used proprietary UHPC mixes, which can sometimes constrain the DOTs bidding process due to lack of several UHPC vendors. In this collaborative effort among all five institutions in the ABC-UTC consortium, comprehensive research on non-proprietary UHPC mix design and extension to common ABC applications is sought.
