This paper describes the influence of the temperature and the fibre reinforcement on the flexural fatigue behaviour of an ultra-high-performance fibre-reinforced concrete. Three-point bending fatigue tests were carried out for an ultra-high-performance concrete subjected to different temperatures ranging from room temperature up to 300 ºC and considering three different types of reinforcement: a) steel fibres, b) hybrid steel and polypropylene fibres and c) non-reinforced (reference matrix). The fatigue behaviour was assessed from the S-N fields obtained through a probabilistic fatigue model developed by Castillo and Fernández-Canteli. The influence of the type of reinforcement on the fatigue behaviour was analysed by SN curves. An analysis of the thermal effects in the fatigue life of the ultra-high-performance concrete has also been carried out. The results showed the most suitable fibre reinforcement among the analysed options to get the best fatigue behaviour in accordance to the exposure temperature.
