Abstract: Within the French joint Research consortium BADIFOPS, nine longitudinally-reinforced
UHPFRC columns with a rectangular cross-section and various ratios of transverse
reinforcement were tested under combined axial and repeated or alternate transverse loading.
Moreover, three composite columns consisting of UHPFRC-jacketed conventional reinforced
concrete cores at their basis were tested following the same protocol, as well as a
conventional reinforced concrete companion specimen. The global ductility of the columns
can be derived from their bending moment vs. transverse displacement response for different
applied axial loads. Details of the experimental program carried out are given.
