Different types of steel fibres including twisted steel fibre (TF), waved steel fibre (WF), and micro steel fibre (MF) together with different kinds of nano materials including Nano-CaCO3, Nano-SiO2, Nano-TiO2and Nano-Al2O3are studied in the present research. Material compressive stress–strain relationships, strain energy absorption, the flexural strength and fracture energy absorption of UHPC with different nanoscale materials and steel fibres were compared and discussed. Laboratory static bending tests and field blast tests on structural components made of selected UHPC material composition were carried out, and the results highlighted the superior material ductility and blast resistant capacity of UHPC material developed in the present study.
