Experimental Study of Uniaxial Tensile of High Performance Ductile Engineered Cementitious Composites
The tensile properties of high performance ductile engineered cementitious composites are tested through 60 specimens divided into 5 groups according to adding 5 various PVA fibres, the tensile strength, tensile elasticity modulus and the tensile pseudostrain-hardening stress-strain curves are obtained, the corresponding matrices are also tested for tension, the tensile strength relationships between different PVA fibres, and between tensile elasticity modulus and tensile strength are proposed according to the test results. In addition, multicracking can be see, and the ultimate tensile strain of partial high performance ductile engineered cementitious composites with filling different PVA fibres can reach to 3% which is 1000 times of the plain concrete. The influences of matrix and the different PVA fibres on ultimate tensile strain, peak stress and peak strain are analyzed by experimental data. At last, the tensile pseudostrain-hardening stress-strain curves are discussed, the experimental conclusions can provide a lot of experimental and theoretical bases for making the composites hold the high ductility consumption ability.
