Drill Bits made of Ultra-High Performance Concrete

Application in Special Foundation Engineering

The strength properties of Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) allow it to be used for research applications in special foundation engineering. In this regard, UHPC generally competes with steel. In many special foundation applications, steel is used as the common material. For the successful market penetration of applications made of UHPC, however, it is not only mechanical aspects that are decisive, but also economical and – nowadays additionally – ecological aspects. The research presented here is mainly focused on the use of UHPC in special foundation engineering. So far, drill bits for constructing full displacement piles made of UHPC have been researched. Initial field tests have been carried out with great success.
