Abstract: CRC (Compact Reinforced Composite) is the designation of a special type of UHPFRC (Ultra High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete) developed in Denmark in 1986. CRC has been used in structural applications since 1995. Hi-Con A/S has used CRC exclusively since 2001 - typically for smaller precast structural elements such as balcony slabs, staircases, beams and columns and mostly on the Danish market. Over the last 5-6 years new products have been introduced - and to new markets, with applications in Holland, England, Sweden, Norway and Finland. The applications of CRC have been relatively successful with more than 70,000 tons of structural elements produced over the years but while the Eurocode does not cover CRC, applications of CRC also fall short of the requirements in the new standards being developed for UHPFRC. Examples show how it is possible to achieve good design without meeting these standards – and some of the challenges are described.
