Abstract

The aim of this paper is to describe the performance of reinforced concrete (RC) beams retrofitted with a self-compacting ultra-high-performance fibre-reinforced concrete (UHPFRC) under three-point bend cyclic loading. It is found that retrofitting the RC beams with a thin UHPFRC strip on the tension face increases their endurance limit under a non-zero mean stress cyclic loading from approximately 40% to approximately 60% of their static three-point flexural strength. Moreover, the retrofitted beams behave as a composite structure, with no delamination of the retrofit strip being observed in any of the fatigue tests.
