Beginning in 2019, the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requested that TRB be directly involved in managing evaluations of selected projects undertaken by the agency.
The TRB Cooperative Research Program's CRP Special Release 3: Evaluation of Ultra-High Performance Concrete Connections presents an evaluation of the UHPC Research and Development Program. UHPC is used in highway bridges, particularly for bridge-deck-level connections for prefabricated bridge elements.
