Design of the first UHPC bridge in Spain, located in Beniarjó (Valencia)


RDC designed in 2018 the first UHPC road bridge built in Spain. The solution was required to rebuild a bridge over the Vernissa river, which was destroyed by the floods on year 2007. The bridge consisted of a bidirectional decks supported existing piles to save six spans, each of them of 10 m. The purpose of the solution was to achieve a resilient structure able to resist future floods and with improved durability.

Why to use UHPC?

UHPC provides a more resilient structure in a region that suffers periodically the hit of the floods. Besides, it has higher corrosion strength than the alternatives with concrete.


  • High resiliency of the structure.
  • High level of industrialization of the solution compared to the alternatives.


  • First road bridge built in Spain with UHPC.

More Projects with UHPC


RDC works closely with the client to evaluate the technical, economical and environmental viability of replacing its current solution by UHPC. A tailored premix of Formex® is proposed to maximize the competitiveness of the new element.



UHPC Applications


RDC helps the client to make real the use of UHPC in the daily industrial production. The team supports in stages as the scale-up of the production, the resolution of bottlenecks and the implementation of the quality control plan.





UHPC (Ultra-High Performance Concrete) is an extremely compact and ductile cementitious composite. Its properties make it perfect for applications where durability or maintenance play a significant role, where a lightweight structure is particularly relevant, or where the slenderness or thickness of piece is is important.
