Abstract: This paper presents the experimental and numerical analysis of a concrete plate designed with Ultra High Performance Fiber Reinforced Cement Composite (UHPFRCC). This type of composite belongs to a new generation of cementitious materials conceived on a multi-scale reinforcement concept that allows improved tensile stress-strain response. The constitutive relation for the material under tension was obtained by means of an inverse analysis approach based on four point bending tests carried out on small plates. The material compressive behavior was considered as perfect elasto-plastic with Druker-Prager criterion. One UHPFRCC square plate was tested until failure and modeled by the FEM using the constitutive law found by inverse analysis. The good correlation between numerical and experimental results (load-deflection and crack pattern) indicated that the used methodology seems to be consistent to determine the behavior of the UHPFRCC plates up to failure.
