This study investigates the method of ultrasonic pulse velocity technique as a non-destructive test for concrete to estimate the mechanical properties of RPC, modified reactive powders concrete (MRPC). This study is based on data obtained from the experimental investigation done in this work and comparison with the data of pervious works. After conducting pulse velocity tests on cubic samples, the relationship between pulse velocity, elastic modulus and compressive strength of samples was obtained with an acceptable approximation. Also, the validity of the proposed relation ACI 363.1 and four distinguished researchers regarding the calculation of RPC, MRPC elastic modulus and its comparison with the dynamic elasticity modulus (ASTM C 597) with respect to different materials and mix designs. The dynamic modulus of elasticity (Ed) increased on average by 19% over the modulus of elasticity (Ec). Given the lack of research on the relationship between the parameters mentioned in the MRPC, the present study is an exploratory research concerned with the relationship of these methods. Also, two new models are presented for relating these parameters.
