Ultra-High-Performance – Concrete (UHPC)
The UHPC used is a proprietary concrete product with metallic short fibers. According to the manufacturer’s specifications, the ultimate compressive strength at 28 days is expected to range between 150 to 180 MPa with a strength after 24 h equal to approximately 30 MPa . Though supplementary heat treatment administered to the UHPC could allow the compressive strength to exceed 200 MPa , this procedure was not performed on the UHPC used in this experimental program. Similarly, the manufacturer’s specifications provided values for the modulus of elasticity

equal to between 50 and 60 GPa . Experimental testing, in accordance with ASTM C469-94 , using three UHPC cylinders determined the compressive strength to be 131 ± 12 MPa and the modulus of elasticity to be 52 559 ± 7102 MPa. Splitting tests performed in accordance with ASTM C496-96  showed the tensile strength of the UHPC to be equal to 24 ± 2 MPa.
