Abstract

Ultra-High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete is a material which is becoming increasingly popular in structural applications, mainly due to its superior mechanical characteristics. The mechanical properties of this material are of high importance and the development of non-destructive techniques is vital for the evaluation of the mechanical characteristics of existing structures. In the current study, Ultra-High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete with different amounts of steel fibres has been examined. Compressive and tensile tests have been conducted alongside with Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity and Rebound Hammer measurements and the development of appropriate empirical non-destructive models has been examined.
