This paper presents a further step development of fiber reinforced cementitious composites, which aims to retain all the aspects of high tensile strain capacity, strain hardening and multiple microcracking behavior of engineered cementitious composites (ECC), while achieving high tensile and compressive strengths that are possessed by ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC). The material to be developed in this study is termed as ultra-high performance (UHP)-ECC. The target values of its tensile strain capacity (6~10%), tensile strength (16~20 MPa), and compressive strength (> 100 MPa) are indicated in Fig.1.
