Other UHPC Uses
- Precast pouring of larger and longer structural elements
- Injection or extrusion techniques (molding)
- Pre and post-tensioning components
- SIP Pannels
- Precast beams
- Cast-in-place joints between precast beams
- Precast deck panels
- Cast-in-place joints and stud pockets of precast deck panels
- Link slabs between adjacent spans
- Precast parapets and side barriers
- Precast inlets for stormwater management
- Tilt-up construction
- Reinforced Modular Homes
Some of the more innovative ways to use this new concrete include:
- Construction of thinner sections for complex structural forms
Pier Jacketing- if your next bridge retrofit project includes pier jacketing, our cement solutions combine both performance and economy in the same package. When used as a cover around an existing pier or column UHPC strengthens and protects the structure from a variety of environmental factors.
Potential elimination of primary and /or secondary reinforcement
- Off-site manufacturing
- Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) – UHPC is ideal for the durable field-cast connections required in ABC.
- Retrofit and modification projects – UHPC’s adhesive quality makes it ideal for repair and retrofitting of many structures, such as parking garage decks, bridge decks, spalled structural members, and building columns and walls.
- Architectural design – UHPC allows for the precise replication of architectural details. It can be casted or molded to match any desired appearance, including masonry, wood siding, board & batted, and textured concrete. Period-specific designs and demands for surface texture, color, and shape are now possible.
- Structures exposed to harsh elements – Structures such as pier foundations and bridges built over water that have foundations repeatedly exposed to salt water and moisture are ideal candidates for UHPC, given its moisture and chemical resistance and imperviousness to freeze and thaw cycles.
