In Germany, a 12 Mio. € Research Program on UHPC was performed since 2005, covering a wide range of topics related to UHPC. The program was funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and coordinated by the University of Kassel. More than 20 research institutes were involved. Its purpose was to elaborate the basic knowledge necessary to draft reliable technical standards covering materials, material-adequate design principles and innovative construction and fitting technologies to make UHPC a commonly available and regularly applied material. Based on the results of several projects dealing with the microstructure, the time depending early age behaviour und the resistance of hardened UHPC to chemical and physical attacks adequate limits for the composition of highly durable UHPC are presented for discussion.
