Abstract

The demand for improved properties of the construction materials increase with time and the relateddesign and construction codes are adapted in an analogous manner. UHPFRCCs represent a class ofcement composites which have superior characteristics in terms of material properties. Theirmechanical and fracture behaviour is substantially enhanced compared to other types of concrete.These materials have, however, a significant increase in cost over and above that of conventional andeven High Performance Concrete and it is therefore appropriate to identify applications which willfully utilize their mechanical properties and performance characteristics. The aim of this study is topresent the results on the development of an UHPFRCC, the experimental investigation of the qualityand the behaviour of this material in a highly demanding application, such as the impact resistance ofstructures and finally the development of a Finite Element Analysis program which will form a basisfor analysis of future field tests.
