UHPC – a high-performance material for filigree structures

Ultra-high-strength concrete (UHSC) is the result of new developments in the field of concrete technology, particularly of superplasticizers, and of the option to optimize packing density in the fine particle range. This material can achieve strengths in excess of 150 MPa. However, although strength is usually considered to be the most important criterion, it describes the opportunities that this new material provides only to an insufficient extent.
