Abstract: The authors have been involved in research and development of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) and its applications for precast members in the Czech Republic since 2010. Other partners in the research team are Klokner Institute of the Czech Technical University in Prague, contractors (Skanska CZ and Metrostav) and a supplier (BASF). Local materials are preferably used, the main concern is given to durability, sustainability aspects and competitiveness of structures in life-cycle assessment. The experience from this research has been utilized for the design and implementation of several bridges in the Czech Republic. The cable-stayed footbridge over the Labe in Celakovice, as the most significant achievement, is described in detail. This research and development led to the draft proposal of the recommendations for the material specifications, design, testing and execution of precast structures made of UHPC in the Czech Republic.
