High-strength engineered cementitious composites (ECC) typically require higher cement content, which is negative from the sustainability point of view. To alleviate this problem, herein a low-cost and eco-friendly high-strength ECC (with a compressive strength of over 100 MPa) was developed, and diatomite was used to replace a small amount...

Auxetic cementitious cellular composites (ACCCs) exhibit desirable mechanical properties (e.g., high fracture resistance and energy dissipation), due to their unique deformation characteristics. In this study, a new type of cementitious auxetic material, referred to as peanut shaped ACCC, has been designed and subsequently architected using...

This paper presents a state-of-the-art review on the application of additive manufacturing (AM) in self-healing cementitious materials. AM has been utilized in self-healing cementitious materials in three ways: (1) concrete with 3D-printed capsules/vasculatures; (2) 3D concrete printing (3DCP) with fibers or supplementary cementitious...

Early-age cracking risk induced by autogenous deformation is high for cementitious materials of low water-binder ratios. The autogenous deformation, viscoelastic properties, and stress evolution are three important factors for understanding and quantifying the early-age cracking risk. This paper systematically reviewed the experimental and...

Crystalline admixture (CA) is an effective self-healing agent for mortar. However, the effects of crack parameters (i.e. crack width and cracking age) and the service environment on the self-healing behavior of CA-containing mortar are not well understood. Herein, the self-healing behavior of mortar containing a self-developed CA was assessed...

In the race to achieve global climate neutrality, carbon intensive industries like the clinker and cement industry are required to decarbonize rapidly. The environmental impacts related to potential transition pathways to low-carbon systems can be evaluated using prospective life cycle assessment (pLCA). This study conducts a pLCA for future...

This study employs a lattice fracture model to simulate static and fatigue fracture behaviour of Interfacial Transition Zone (ITZ) at microscale and mortar at mesoscale. The heterogeneous microstructure of ITZ and mesostructure of mortar are explicitly considered in the models. The initial step involves calibrating and validating the...

Self-healing concrete using encapsulated healing agent has shown great potential in enhancing concrete durability. However, the capsules are expensive to make and can lower the mechanical properties of concrete. In this study, a new type of manufactured aggregate that employs waste-derived fly ash cenosphere as a carrier of healing agent (SH...

A novel highly compressible auxetic cementitious composite (ACC) is developed in this work. Contrary to conventional cementitious materials, such as plain concrete and fiber reinforced concrete, the ACC shows strain-hardening behavior under uniaxial compression: the stress continuously increases with strain up to approximately 40 % strain. On...

This study investigates the size effect on the compressive strength of foamed concrete at the mesoscale level combining X-ray computed tomography (X-CT) and a discrete lattice model. Image segmentation techniques and X-CT were employed to obtain virtual specimens comprising hydrated cement paste and air voids. The lineal-path function and...

The Stiffness Damage Test (SDT), a cyclic test in compression, is considered as a reliable tool for assessing concrete structures affected by ASR. Depending on the extent of ASR damage in concrete, loading levels up to 40% of the compressive strength may contribute to increasing internal damage during testing. Nevertheless, previous research...

Compared with other self-healing mechanisms, embedding vascular networks in cementitious matrix enables repairing wider cracks and performing multiple healing cycles. For vascular-based self-healing cementitious composites, additive manufacturing (AM) allows fabricating vascular structures with complex geometry. For Fused Filament Fabrication ...

Self-healing concrete has shown excellent potential in improving the durability of (reinforced) concrete structures and reducing the need for their repair and maintenance. This has been further substantiated by several successful full-scale demonstrator projects. Nevertheless, industrial uptake of the technology is lagging behind, mainly due to...

The mechanical performance of engineered cementitious composite (ECC) depends greatly on fiber orientation and distribution. In this paper, the effect of fiber orientation on ECC's mechanical properties was investigated using two different casting methods: a flow-induced casting was used to enhance the fiber orientation within ECC mixture and...

The particle size distribution (PSD) has a significant influence on the fresh and final properties of cement and its derived products. In this paper, CSA cements with three different mean diameters (D<sub>50</sub>), ranging from 6.04 to 26.62 μm were prepared by milling. The pre-hydration behavior was quantitatively analyzed, including the...
