The development of high-performance materials, which are characterized by high compressive and flexural strength, durability and performance properties, is an urgent problem of modern construction. Engineered cementitious composites are one such material. Improving of properties of composites is achieved by partial replacement of cement with supplementary cementitious materials. The ratio of binder and filler components and superplasticizer consumption were selected.
engineered cementitious composite
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.
