Tension, Compression and Cyclic Testing of Engineered Cementitious Composite Materials

The study presented in this the Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research (MCEE) report describes the testing and performance to examine the potential use and behavior of engineered cementitious composite (ECC) materials in lieu of traditional materials. The research offered is on the development of an innovative composite material for use in seismic strengthening and rehabilitation applications; specifically, an infill panel system was developed that uses the pseudo-strain hardening properties of the ECC materials. The ECC materials evaluated were found to have excellent potential for use in these purposes. This study is the first to investigate the response of the ECC materials to reversed cyclic loadings. There is an extensive inclusion of illustrations and tables in this report.
