Abstract: The extremely low permeability of Ultra-High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concretes
(UHPFRC) associated to their outstanding mechanical properties make them especially
suitable to locally "harden" reinforced concrete structures in critical zones subjected to an
aggressive environment and to significant mechanical stresses. Composite UHPFRC-concrete
structures promise a long-term durability which helps avoid multiple interventions on
structures during their service life. UHPFRC materials can be applied on new structures, or on
existing ones for rehabilitation, as thin watertight overlays in replacement of waterproofing
membranes, as repair layers, as reinforcement layers combined with reinforcement bars, or as
prefabricated elements such as curbs. This document gives a short overview of the research
and development activities performed during the first half of the European project SAMARIS
(Sustainable and Advanced MAterials for Road InfiaStructures), in view of the application of
UHPFRC for the rehabilitation of reinforced concrete structures.
