Hygral Behavior of Engineered Cementitious Composites ( ECC )

  title={Hygral Behavior of Engineered Cementitious Composites ( ECC )},
  author={Martin Weimann and Victor C. Li},
In this paper, the sorption isotherm and the hygral deformation of a tensile strain-hardening fiber reinforced engineered cementitious composite (ECC) is described using a physical model. The influence of using a low alkali content Portland cement on the physical mechanisms of drying shrinkage is discussed. From a durability point of view the crack width of a material as a result of restrained drying shrinkage deformations is more important than the total amount of drying shrinkage. In terms of… CONTINUE READING
