Advances in the science of concrete materials have led to the development of a new class of cementitious composites, namely ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). The mechanical and durability properties of UHPC make it an ideal candidate for use in developing new solutions to pressing concerns about highway infrastructure deterioration, repair, and replacement. Since 2000, when UHPC became commercially available in the United States, a series of research projects has demonstrated the capabilities of the material.

Three State transportation departments have deployed UHPC components within their infrastructure, and many more are actively considering the use of UHPC. This book documents the research, development, and deployment of UHPC components and includes information about its materials and production, mechanical properties, structural design and structural testing, durability and durability testing, and actual and potential applications. The book concludes with recommendations for the future direction for UHPC applications in the United States. (Imprint: Nova)
