You Think UHPC is Expensive? Its Not!

You think UHPC is expensive? Well, the savings you get from using it frequently outweigh the higher unit cost of the material because you can design ultra-slim and ultra-lightweight structures. In the picture below: instead of renting an expensive crane, the project backhoe was used to lift the lightweight UHPC panels into place. Transportation was cheaper. Instead of transporting one traditional panel per truck, 3 UHPC panels fit on the truck. The light panels resulted in a commensurately light foundation system. Then, of course, the cherry on top is the terrific durability of the bridge resulting in great savings due to the greatly lengthened maintenance cycle.
