SmartUP UHPC Utilized in Field Cast Connections for Series of Five TxDOT Bridges

UHPC has been a major component in many Accelerated Bridge Construction or ABC projects. To date, the major use of UHPC has been in prefabricated bridge element construction; sometimes called closure pours. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) recently utilized UHPC for prefabricated bridge element connections on a series of five bridges in North Texas.

Historic Bridge in Northern France Modernized with SMARTUP™ UHPC

The Pont de Thouaré-sur-Loire bridge in northwestern France was built between 1879 and 1882. In order to keep up with modern traffic flows and correct years of corrosion, the aging, quarter-mile long bridge underwent a complete renovation in 2017. Today, the original brick vaulted structure now features Ultra High-Performance Fiber reinforced concrete slabs resting on new metal bridge components.
