The focus of this thesis is to research and develop a uniaxial tensile testing technique and methodology to attain the post-peak softening response for ultra-high performance concrete under confining pressure. This particular multi-axial behavior is valuable in improving current material models in finite element simulations for US Army applications into hardened target structures.
