Researchers at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, developed nonproprietary ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) mixtures that can be made from off-the-shelf products and do not require onerous placement or special curing processes. The resulting material has similar performance characteristics but is substantially less expensive than proprietary UHPC mixtures.
