Experimental study on flexural behaviors of engineered cementitious composite beams reinforced with FRP bars

engineered cementitious composite beams reinforced with FRP bars

The use of FRP reinforcement has attracted great attention in concrete structures due to its high tensile strength, good fatigue performance, and especially inherent anti-corrosion ability. Engineered cementitious composite (ECC) is a class of high performance cementitious composites with pseudo strain-hardening and multiple cracking properties. Substitution of concrete with ECC can avoid the cracking and durability problems from weakness of ...
