Paper Title:
The Apparent Density, Tensile Properties and Drying Shrinkage of Ultra High Toughness Cementitious Composites
  Abstract

A new class of high performance fiber reinforced cementitious composites called Ultra High Toughness Cementitious Composites (UHTCC) is developed in the last few years. It is a pseudo strain hardening material with maximum tensile strain capacity more than 3%, yet the fiber volume fraction no more than 2%. The multiple cracking patterns accompanying pseudo strain hardening behavior are obtained which implies high ductility, energy absorption capacity, and toughness. A remarkable characteristic distinguish it from conventional high performance fiber reinforced concrete is the maximum crack width of multiple cracks which is about 60µm under ultimate tensile load. Such micro-cracks are often small enough to prevent the intrusion of aggressive agents. From a durability point of view this composite can be considered as an effectively uncracked material. The performances of this new material, including the apparent density, the uniaxial tensile property, and the drying shrinkage performance, are experimental studied in this paper.
