engineered cementitious composite

EFFECT OF COMPONENT COMPOSITION ON PROPERTIES OF ENGINEERED CEMENTITIOUS COMPOSITES

The application of engineering cementitious composites (ECC) – a specially developed class of cement-based material reinforced with fibers – allows to enhance the loading capacity, stability under static and dynamic influences, as well as durability of building structures due to controlled cracking process. The design of engineering cementitious composites is based on the concept of micromechanics, which includes the strength and energy criteria of deformation strengthening throughout the wide range from the macro- to the nanostructural level.
