IPOH, 20 JUNE 2019: A total of 13 guest from Institute for Infrastructure Engineering and Sustainable Management (IIESM), Faculty of Civil Engineering (FCE), and Concrete Society of Malaysia (CSM) organized a technical visit at Dura Technology factory in Chemor, Perak. The purpose of this visit was to provide a more in-depth knowledge in the science of concrete materials have led to the development of a new class of cementitious composites that called ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). UHPC is being considered for use in a wide variety of highway infrastructure applications. The high compressive and tensile strengths allow for the redesign and optimization of structural elements compare with the normal concrete.
After short presentation, the guests were taken to Wilson Hall to show our products material and the process of making UHPFRC to know what high strength concrete can do. After the factory visit, they are going to site visit which located at Manong that is still on-going project. During the site visit, the honourable guest and participants were impressed by the possibilities and capability of this material.
