Article Preview

An experimental program was formulated to investigate the characteristics of complete stress-strain curve of UHPC in uniaxial compression and flexural behaviors of prestressed UHPC beams. The particular focus was the influence of the partial prestress ratio and jacking stress on the flexural response of UHPC beams. The tests of beams demonstrated that the UHPC beams have an excellent behavior in load carrying capacity, crack distribution and deformability; their ultimate deflection can reach 1/34~1/42 of the span. Based on this investigation, theoretical correlations for the prediction structure response of UHPC beams are proposed.
