The objective of this study was to investigate the compression behaviour of the UHPFRC and its matrix (UHPC) under high strain rate. Two experimental set-ups were used for compression testing: a traditional Split Hopkinson Pressure Bars and a compression version of the Modified Hopkinson Bar. The tests were conducted, in the range of 100–500 s−1 on cylindrical specimens with both diameter and height of 20 mm. Results show significant increases in peak strength and dissipated energy.
