Experimental Investigation of Composite Ultra-High-Performance Fiber-Reinforced Concrete and Conventional Concrete Members

This study experimentally documents and develops an analytical modeling tool to predict and analyze the structural response and behavior of a composite ultra-high-performance fiber-reinforced concrete (UHPFRC) and conventional reinforced concrete (RC) beam. The study's goal is to propose an original method for efficient rehabilitation and strengthening of the beams and slabs of existing RC structures. The composite structural response is determined by testing 12 full-sized flexural beams, loading the UHPFRC layer in tension. The results demonstrate that the exceptional material properties of UHPFRC significantly improve the composite member structural response, including the ultimate force, stiffness, and cracking behavior.
