“UHPFRC” international symposium was first organized in Marseille (France) in 2009 for synthesizing the know-how and applications related to Ultra-High Performance Fibre-Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC). Four years later, projects and constructions using UHPFRC have definitively gained a growing importance in Europe and North America, as well as in Australia, Far East, and especially Japan.
“UHPFRC 2013” has thus aimed at updating and complementing experience gained in the knowledge and use of UHPFRC, based on recent practice of: design of building structures, components, civil works and bridges; industrial realizations (both on site and in precast factories); and large scale applications. More than eighty presentations detailed the technical and scientific advances, focusing on major recent realizations; decisive use of UHPFRC in structural retrofitting and combination of UHPFRC and ordinary RC; durability and resistance of UHPFRC under severe on-site or laboratory conditions; prospective applications of UHPFRC in current or outstanding works; recent advances in UHPFRC structures design and ductility assessment; and recent results of constitutive characterization and mix optimization of UHPFRC.
In 2013, Marseille, recognized as European capital of culture, has renewed its urban figure and shoreline with iconic architectural achievements. Among them, the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations (MUCEM) constitutes an outstanding realization due to the systematic structural and decorative use of UHPFRC. The MUCEM, in hosting the venue of UHPFRC 2013 symposium, has appeared as a symbol of worldwide engineering community, technical breakthrough and creativity.
