Assessment on adequate dosage of superplasticizer in eco-friendly ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) containing industrial by-products was carried out from the standpoint of workability. Various types of industrial by-products, including blast-furnace slag, coal bottom ash and rapid-cooled electric arc furnace oxidizing slag, were utilized, and the effects of dosage of superplasticizer on the workability and strength of UHPC containing the by-products were evaluated. By utilizing the by-products, the workability of UHPC was improved and required dosage of superplasticizer was reduced. In addition, the material cost for UHPC with by-products was decreased due to reduced dosage of superplasticizer.
