Abstract: This study addresses an optimization of fibre orientation and distribution for a sustainable
Ultra-High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC). The purpose of this research
is to propose an efficient method that can improve the fibre efficiency in the UHPFRC and
understand the intrinsic mechanism. The UHPFRC skeleton is designed by employing
particle densely packing model (Andreasen & Andersen model). Based on appropriate
application of superplasticizers and fibres, a UHPFRC with high flowability is firstly
produced, and two cast methods are utilized in this study. The obtained results show that the
fibres orientation and distribution can be significantly influenced by the fresh UHPFRC
flowing parameters, (e.g. flowing direction, flowing distance and wall effects), and the
flowing process of fibres in the fresh UHPFRC can be generally divided into: disorder period,
stable period and re-disorder period. Additionally, the added fibre dosage is also a key factor
for obtaining an optimized UHPFRC, since the interactions between single fibres have close
relationship with their dynamic movement during the UHPFRC flowing process.
