Paper Title:
Tensile Properties of Low Shrinkage Engineered Cementitious Composite
  Abstract

This paper reports the tensile properties of a new class of engineered cementitious composite with characteristic of low drying shrinkage. Experimental results show that drying shrinkage of the composite is greatly reduced as using the low shrinkage cementitious material in matrix, while the composite remains strain-hardening and multiple cracking characteristics. The measured drying shrinkage strain at 28 days is only 10910-6 to 24210-6 for low shrinkage ECCs. For traditional ECC, the shrinkage strain at 28 days is nearly 120010-6. The average tensile strain capacity after 28 days curing is 2.5% of the low shrinkage ECC with tensile strength of 4-5MPa.
