Abstract: In Germany, a guideline for UHPC is in progress and will be published by the German Committee for Structural Concrete (Deutscher Ausschuss für Stahlbeton – DAfStb). The guideline extends and modifies the relevant European standards for design of concrete structures and concrete technology. After its implementation by the building authorities, the guideline is mandatory for structural applications with UHPC in Germany.
The guideline consists of two parts. Part 1 applies to the design of buildings and civil engineering works enabling structures exclusively reinforced with steel fibres, as well as pre-stressed and conventionally reinforced structures both in combination with steel fibres. Part 2 applies to concrete technology and quality control. It contains e.g. supplementary procedures and additional requirements for raw materials and for the mix design as well as control procedures enabling concrete producers to produce cost efficient UHPC mixtures based on regionally available raw materials for different applications.
