Ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) is developed using the local constituents. The concrete mix exceeding the compression cylinder strength of 150 MPa was thoroughly tested. Its production in industrial mixing plants was verified. Its application in structures required additional tests investigating the performance of anchoring zones and bond between steel and UHPC. The tests showing the load carrying capacity of structural elements were carried out. The developed concrete mixes are now used for construction of a footbridge. © 2013 The Authors.
