An overall review of the structural behaviors of ultra-high-performance fiber-reinforced concrete (UHPFRC) elementssubjected to various loading conditions needs to be conducted to prevent duplicate research and to promote its practical applications. Thus, in this study, the behavior of various UHPFRC structures under different loading conditions, such as flexure, shear,torsion, and high-rate loads (impacts and blasts), were synthetically reviewed. In addition, the bond performance betweenUHPFRC and reinforcements, which is fundamental information for the structural performance of reinforced concrete structures,was investigated. The most widely used international recommendations for structural design with UHPFRC throughout the world(AFGC-SETRA and JSCE) were specifically introduced in terms of material models and flexural and shear design. Lastly,examples of practical applications of UHPFRC for both architectural and civil structures were examined.
