Abstract

Two different types of strain-hardening cement-based composites (SHCC) were investigated under uniaxial quasi-static and impact tensile loading. The normal-strength matrix was combined with polyvinyl-alcohol (PVA) fiber in one composite and with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) fiber in another. A modified Hopkinson bar was used to assess the impact resistance of SHCC in terms of stress--strain relationships at strain rates of up to 120 1/s.
