As we are approaching the summer holidays, we would like to take a minute to thank all of you who are reading and following our High Performance Concrete blog. Because of you, the blog has reached to an extent that we had never dreamed possible. With almost 2000 views from more than 400 unique visitors in more than 30 countries, we could not be happier. Visitors from Central, North and South America, Scandinavia and all over Europe to people from South Africa, Philippines, India, Malaysia and China have found their way to the blog. Thank you all VERY much!
The blog is built around many thoughts, editorial meetings, writing hours and planning sessions and the last three months Tommy Bæk Hansen, Bendt Aarup, Hans Bruun Nissen and Rogier van Nalta have covered many interesting topics. If you missed a couple of posts, I have listed all of the topics covered for you to go back in the catalogue to read. The list is put in order according to popularity with the most read blogposts being CRC ductility, Considerations when using High Performance Concrete and World leaders of UHPC? Take a look in the list below.

After a great half season of the High Performance Concrete blog we will take a break during the summer holidays, which means that we are not going to write any further posts until August 23. We are very excited to return to posting on the blog and as the blog continues we will, among other topics, start our series of posts by covering structural applications of CRC i2®.
Now, we have also reached the time where we would like to invite YOU to contribute to the blog with topics that you hunger to know more about. We are all in for writing content that creates value for you, and therefore your inputs are crucial for us to create the best possible blogposts in the weeks to come.
We hope that you keep reading in August and we are looking forward to receiving ideas for topics to cover.
Thanks again for your time and have a great summer!

Greetings. As I am new to your posts and site, I would like to say how much I appreciate your expertise and experience and posts. I was a mason for many years and now sell basalt fiber reinforcements in the US and worldwide. My associates also have gotten license to a new UHPC they plan on introducing soon and we welcome associative help and knowledge and I hope we may be able to do some business together. Being new in this business as you know is daunting and there are many hurdles for us to jump, however it is exciting. I can see how much extensive testing and analysis you have done and do regularly. Best regards and please contact if interested thanks. Nick
Hi Nick. We appreciate your comments and are pleased that our posts have been of value to you. We have tested basalt fibres for some of our applications but are not yet ready to use them in combination with conventional reinforcement – but we know they are receiving a lot of interest for especially facade applications. Best of luck with introducing UHPC in the US – it has taken a while but we are seeing more and more UHPC projects also in the US – and especially in connection with bridge construction. I attended the 1st International Interactive Symposium on UHPC, which was held in Des Moines last July and there was really a lot of activity in this field. The next Symposium is scheduled for Albany in June 2019 so perhaps you will have something to present at that time :-). Best regards Bendt
