Abstract

Ultra-High Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC) is a material which is characterized by enhanced mechanical properties. The properties of the material are highly depended on the composition of the mix and the curing regimes. However, the final mix design should combine both high mechanical properties and cost effectiveness. In the present study an extensive experimental program takes place and the mechanical properties of UHPFRC, for different percentages of steel fibers as well as different curing regimes, are investigated. Finally, a cost analysis is performed and a discussion about the relation between the cost and the mechanical properties is made.
