Abstract
Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) offers a great spectrum of favourable material properties. The structural behaviour of UHPC differs from normal- or high-strength concrete, particularly for a supplement of fibres. In most countries valid design rules for this new material do not yet exit. In Germany a work group of the German Commission on Reinforced Concrete (Deutsche Ausschuss für Stahlbeton DAfStb) has presented a state of the art report on UHPC. Chapter 6 of this report describes the knowledge about the properties of hardened UHPC. This paper summarises some of the main aspects dealt with there.
