Abstract

Reactive Powder Concrete (RPC) is a novel concrete material prepared from highly active composite admixtures, cement, fine sand, and micro steel fibers through appropriate curing and processing techniques. RPC not only exhibits ultra-high strength and durability but also demonstrates outstanding toughness, good volume stability, and excellent environmental performance. Its use can reduce the demand for natural resources, extend the service life of structures, and reduce waste generation, aligning with the direction of sustainable development and green building. This makes it an ideal choice for constructing large-span lightweight structures and structures operating in harsh environmental conditions, attracting extensive research attention in the international engineering materials field. In summary, RPC, as a new type of concrete material, has broad application prospects in the construction field. With continuous research and technological development, RPC will undoubtedly bring more innovations and new solutions to the construction industry, promoting its continuous progress and development.
