Implementation of UHPC Technology into the New England Construction Industry

The proposed research aims at the development and implementation of cost effective non-proprietary high and ultrahigh performance concrete (UHPC) mix designs. Research emphasis is being placed on testing and analysis of durability properties of promising UHPC mixtures, as well as testing large scale mixing in collaboration with industry partners in the field. Knowledge transfer, educating personnel and quality control will be vital parts in this project to make this challenging task a success. Upon success, this project will provide a great opportunity to enhance the sustainability and longevity of our bridge infrastructure.
