HPC ON BRIDGES: THE FLORIDA EXPERIENCE

Roadway and bridge engineers today are familiar with the term "high-performance concrete" (HPC). Not all are aware of the specifics, but they do understand that HPC is supposed to be something "new and improved" and that it relates to greater cost effectiveness in highway construction. Generally, HPC may be defined as concrete that is engineered to make it more durable and, if necessary, stronger and stiffer than conventional concrete. This article provides a history of the development and use of HPC in the State of Florida.
