Second International Interactive Symposium on Ultra-High Performance Concrete

The Second International Interactive Symposium on Ultra-High Performance Concrete (2IIS-UHPC) will be held in Albany, New York, USA from June 2 to 5, 2019. Building on the success of the first symposium held in July 2016, the symposium is bringing together the UHPC Community for more learning, networking, and advancement of this innovative technology. The interactive symposium will afford professionals working on all aspects of UHPC to:

  • share knowledge about applications and opportunities,
  • broaden technical depth,
  • identify knowledge gaps and
  • grow the UHPC family dedicated to truly working together to achieve similar goals.

Why are precasters not adopting UHPC as a material?

Why are precasters not adopting UHPC as a material?

Cost is a primary impediment but also confidence in execution.  Perceived risk by both contractors and precast fabricators circle around being unable to perform reliably in the field or at the plant and ultimately lose too much money with such an expensive material.  Currently this fear outweighs the gain in market share for most.
