  • M Raghunanthan, P Chandrasekaran, K Nirmalkumar

Abstract

This article presents about the art of knowledge of ultra-high performance concrete with the reinforcement of fibers. In present stage, high performance concrete has been widely used in construction industry. In this review paper, a review about the mechanical properties and durability properties of ultra-high performance fiber reinforced concrete has been studied from the different research articles with different replacements of mineral admixtures such silica fume, ground granulated blast furnace slag and two types of fiber addition such as polypropylene fiber and steel fiber. The results from various research articles showed that the addition of steel fibers in ultra-high performance concrete was more effective in both mechanical and durability properties than the addition of polypropylene fiber to the concrete.
