ABSTRACT: Adversarial installations, such as those housing the means for nuclear weapons production, are increasingly being constructed in heavily fortified locations and often using ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) as the construction material. As such, the U.S. Air Force has considerable interest in further developments of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) to maintain an advantage over potential adversaries for both force protection applications as well as to establish methods for defeating adversarial installations constructed from the most advanced forms of UHPC. In response to this need, i2C Solutions, in partnership with the University of New Mexico (UNM) propose to develop an advanced form of UHPC that builds upon recent UHPC research performed at UNM using cost-effective and widely available constituent materials. The team anticipates that the proposed advanced form of UHPC will possess considerably greater compression strength as compared to current UHPC while also possessing significant tensile strength and fracture toughness. BENEFIT: If successful, the proposed UHPC will result in a high performance, highly cost-effective UHPC capable of being utilized in the construction of military test platforms. In addition, the proposed UHPC could see use in the construction of numerous hardened facilities including military installations, civilian government installations and nuclear reactors among numerous others.
