Everything you ever wanted to know about high-performance concrete (HPC) and more. The Third International Symposium on HPC will be held October 19-22, 2003, in Orlando, Florida. Sponsored by FHWA and the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI), the symposium will address the research, design, construction, performance, and benefits of HPC, which is concrete designed to achieve enhanced durability and/or strength characteristics while ensuring adequate constructibility. The event is being held in conjunction with the PCI Bridge Conference. Also scheduled in conjunction with the Symposium is a meeting of the FHWA HPC Technology Delivery Team on October 21.
