Repetitive Elements in Precast Ultra-High Performance Concrete (Print Course)

For this learning unit, we will focus on the use of repetitive precast UHPC building elements which permit greater use of a single mold, and thereby result in increased quality and decreased production cost. Naturally, through repetitive production, the precaster will become well-acquainted with the mold and the process. Ultimately, personal experience and knowledge gained will attribute to increased quality of UHPC design elements at a reduced production cost.[endshort]

Learning Objectives

  • Explain why some Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) design elements may be cost prohibitive.
  • Describe how UHPC design elements may be developed in order to achieve maximum mold utilization.
  • Explain how to use small customizations in order to gain large design effects in repetitive elements.
  • Assess a project for its viability to incorporate UHPC elements.
