            Abstract

            Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) is a cement-based material that can be used to build new buildings or fix up old ones to make them last longer. It is a revolutionary composite material that may serve as a viable substitute for concrete construction in hostile environments. After decades of research and development, a broad variety of commercial UHPC compositions have been created across the globe to meet the expanding number of uses and demand for high-quality building materials. The usage of ultra-high performance concrete is restricted because of its exorbitant cost and restricted design standards. Therefore, a thorough examination of the durability properties of UHPC is necessary to offer vital data for material testing criteria and methods and to broaden its practical uses. It is hoped that this article will help people understand UHPC better and encourage more research and applications.
