18.104.22.168 Increasing Awareness Regarding the Benefits of UHPC
Will Drive the Demand for Ultra-high Performance Concrete Market in Denmark
The growth of the ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC
) market is largely associated with the growth in the residential applications in the construction industry.
To fill this knowledge gap, researchers at FHWA's Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center executed an experimental study on six different commercially available materials being marketed as "UHPC
Composite structures are probably the most appropriate application enabling to take full advantage of the outstanding properties of UHPC
, and various solutions combining a UHPC
slab and a steel girder were successfully developed [5, 6].
In this study, the fatigue behaviour of the orthotropic steel deck of the HuMen Bridge (Figure 3) with a new proposed pavement method (UHPC
layer) will be assessed based on the Miner's linear cumulative damage rule.
The bridge--probably North America's first completely brand new structure to use ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC
) --received an award for "excellence in design and construction in concrete bridges" in the 2010 Portland Cement Association's 12th Biennial Bridge Awards Competition.
Ultra high performance concrete (UHPC
), which has very high mechanical properties (compressive strength >150 MPa and tensile strength >10 MPa), is a relativity new cement-based composite material (Habel et al.

In order to apply nondestructive test method for structure analysis of UHPC
after certain cycles of salt-scaling it is necessary properly understand the structure of the material, destruction mechanism of frost damage and correctly interpret data of applied test method.
