UHPC

UHPC -> Ultra high performance concrete

Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) is a new type of concrete characterised by low weight and high compressive strengths stated to reach up to 200 MPa. UHPC consists of fibre and steel reinforced cement. The cement mixture itself is composed of Portland Cement combined with silica fume and fine steel metal filings.

UHPC along with High Performance Concrete (HPC) is of interest because of its potential to reduce cost of maintenance and life cycle cost
