For strengthening and repair of existing structures different techniques, such as addition of steel sections, gluing of CFRP sheets or strips are customary. Also the use of additional reinforcement in conjunction with sprayed concrete is possible. As an alternative to these conventional methods, the use of thin layers of Ultra High Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC) has been studied experimentally. Results of an experimental study comprising bond tests as well as beam tests on ordinary R/C beams strengthened by thin layers of UHPFRC will be presented.
