Learn about Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) and Fibre Reinforced Concrete (FRC) and how it relates to creating quality, sustainable, durable infrastructure and buildings resulting in very long service life with significantly less mass. UHPC with FRC was created to allow designers, stakeholders and those in the construction industry to provide extended lifespan infrastructure and building solutions. Truly providing a built to last solution.

More information on the courses can be found here.

Materials, Methods and Design of FRC/UHPC

The Canada-wide series of courses will take a look at UHPC and FRC. These 1-day courses will coincide with the release of the 2019 editions of CSA A23.1 and CSA S6, which both contain new Annexes on UHPC and FRC. The CSCE course will cover the introduction to UHPC & FRC, the basics of the technology, material properties, example applications, the importance of fibres in the matrix, design rules and design examples. CEU’s and PDH’s will be offered.
