Title: Seismic Design and Performance of UHPC Bridge Bents
Author(s): Mohamed Moustafa and Christopher Joe
Publication: Web Session
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) is seen as an influential material innovation in the construction industry in the twenty first century. Many research groups overseas as well as in the United States have studied the material and structural behavior in the last two decades. One of the most critical challenges is finding innovative approaches in material design, quality control, and structural performance to strengthen the broad application of this material. UHPC is a preferable construction material of the twenty-first century due to its excellent strength, durability, ductility, and energy dissipation capacity. The session will invite national and international research groups, material suppliers, and contractors to share their knowledge in innovations for broad application. This session fits naturally into the theme “Driving Concrete Technology.”
