The current structural demands include complex designs, efficient utilization of material resources, and maintenance of existing structures and infrastructure. In all these cases, the connections between structural components are the main focus of design since they are widely considered the weakest link in a structural system. The demand for...

Adding extra functionality to cementitious materials will enhance the capabilities of understanding the use of structures where they are used and at the same time increase its life span. The construction industry is one of the most important economic sectors in many countries. Therefore, efforts to improve its productivity can result in...

Strain hardening cementitious composites (SHCC) can be used to reduce the amount of reinforcement needed to control crack widths. SHCC has a strain hardening behaviour with dense micro-cracking, which makes it more ductile compared to conventional concrete. Conventional concrete can be used in the non-critical locations. An interface is formed...

There is a need to develop innovative repair materials which can overcome the challenges of cement-based repair mortars being relatively prone to shrinkage effects. In practice, free shrinkage of repair mortar is often considered as an indicator for potential cracking and delamination of applied repair mortars due to restrained shrinkage...

Application of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcement in concrete beams may cause large deflection and crack width, as well as low shear capacity and ductility due to relatively small stiffness of FRP materials. To avoid these unfavorable factors and evaluate the shear behavior of FRP-reinforced structural members, a high-performance...

The focus of this study is to characterize delamination using static and dynamic tests and to assess the interface failure mechanism of an innovative hybrid concrete beam, made out of conventional concrete and a special class of fibre reinforced material, known as Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC). Three SHCC beams were subject to...

3D concrete printing is an additive manufacturing method that uses a printing robot to build 3D concrete elements. In the last decade, several 3D concrete printing techniques have been developed and extensive research has been conducted on suitable concrete mixes, the printing process and the material and mechanical properties of the finished...

Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) is a new type of concrete that is able to control the crack-width in concrete structures. The application of this material in the tension zone of hybrid concrete structures is thus of interest in practice. The interfacial behavior for these hybrid structures is something that is of importance for...

Starting from the late eighties induced seismic activity is present in the Northern part of the Netherlands. Cause of these earthquakes is the extraction of natural gas. In this region, most of the building stock comprises out of unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings. Multiple experimental campaigns are performed since 2014 to investigate the...

Extrusion based additive manufacturing of cementitious materials has demonstrated strong potential to become widely used in the construction industry. However, the use of this technique in practice is conditioned by a feasible solution to implement reinforcement in such automated process. One of the most successful ductile materials in civil...

Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) is an innovative material which, due to the special material composition and the addition of fibres, exhibits a controlled microcracking behaviour under tensile stresses. As such it might be a promising material for improvement of durability of concrete structures.<br/><br/>An experimental study was...

Cracking in concrete needs to be limited for esthetical and durability reasons. Currently, this is commonly done by using steel rebars in the structure or fiber reinforcement in the material. With certain fiber types and micromechanical design, it is even possible to create cement-based materials with steel like (i.e. quasi-plastic) properties –...

The use of fibres to enhance the ductility of cementitious composites has been extensively studied for the past few years. The addition of polymeric or metalic fibres with random orientation to the composite or even natural long and aligned fibres demonstrated a very successful reinforcement capable to reach a high mechanical performance....

Strain hardening cementitious composite is a new generation material with increased ductility and improved cracking behaviour as compared to traditionally used Normal Strength Concrete (NSC). An important charactersitic of SHCC is the ability of the fibers (2% PVA) in the composite mixture to bridge the cracks and there by preventing...

In the construction industry the demand for repair and maintenance of concrete structures constantly increases. Still, the performance of current concrete repairs is not satisfactory and there is an urgent need for improvement. Understanding the damage development in a repair system, and how to predict, model and prevent its failure is critical...

Differential shrinkage between repair material and concrete substrate is considered to be the main cause of premature failure of repair systems (Martinola, Sadouki et al. 2001, Beushausen and Alexander 2007). Magnitude of induced stresses depends on many factors, for example the amount of restraint, moisture gradients caused by different curing...
