Uniaxial compression of carbon fiber-reinforced cement pastes in the elastic regime caused reversible decreases in both longitudinal and transverse electrical resistivities. In contrast, uniaxial tension had been previously reported to cause reversible increases in both resistivities. The fractional change in resistivity per unit strain is higher in magnitude for carbon fiber silica fume cement paste than carbon fiber latex cement paste. D 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
