Abstract: 
The paper summarizes the development of UHPFRC knowledge and techniques until revision of the AFGC recommendations in 2013, emphasizing the evolutions which benefit from building and design feedback and from research efforts made on the last decade. Recent projects and achievements allow emphasizing the specific points of the design which justified the use of UHPFRC and the critical points of the execution which pass the field of traditional structures. The paper finally lists scientific and technological breaks engendered by UHPFRC which impose the engineers and the designers to think out of the reflexes attached to the traditional reinforced or prestressed concrete structures.
