Application of Ultra High Performace Fibre Reinforced Concrete in the Building Engineering

More Info


Material properties of concrete have developed rapidly in the past fifteen years. With the advent of Ultra High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC) a new material has emerged which is; much stronger, stiffer and durable than conventional concrete. Nonetheless despite these promising developments and due the high material costs UHPFRC is only rarely applied in small niche markets. The objective of this thesis is to derive an innovative and distinctive design which makes best advantage of the characteristic properties of UHPFRC.
