The strongest UHPC bridge in the Netherlandsdi 27 juni 2017
Durable pedestrian bridges have become one of the most important applications of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) in the Netherlands. In 2015 FDN engineering designed and built an UHPC pedestrian bridge called 'Zwaaikom', over a water channel in the city of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. This project has shown that UHPC can be competitive with other materials such as timber or composite for this specific application. The proposed bridge won an open tender thanks to its exceptional durability and attractive architecture, which fits into the surrounding.
