Abstract: This research investigated the sensitivity of various steel fibre types to compressive behaviour of Ultra-high-performance fibre reinforced concretes (UHPFRCs) by experimental program. The same mortar matrix was used while four types of steel fibres were added with identical volume fraction (2%): twisted fibres (T), hooked fibres (H), long smooth fibres (LS) and hybrid fibres (HB) which includes 1% twisted blended 1% short smooth fibres. There was an important increase in compressive resistance of UHPFRCs compared with mortar matrix without fibres. The order of fibre-type sensitivity in terms of compressive strength and ultimate strain was achieved as follows: T > LS > HB > H. The compressive stress versus strain responses of UHPFRCs were virtually linear within their peak points but dispersed and brittle beyond the peaks.
