Review of potential structural applications of hybrid fiber Engineered Cementitious Composites
MetadataShow full item record
This paper reviews some of the recent research work focusing on assessing the performance of hybrid fiber Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC) materials in a number of potential structural applications. A summary of the design and characteristics of such materials is presented followed by a review of recent potential applications of hybrid fiber ECC. The reviewed applications include the use of hybrid fiber ECC for designing impact and blast resistant protective panels, strengthening of unreinforced masonry (URM) walls, strengthening of RC beams, and enhancing corrosion durability of RC beams. The review demonstrates that hybrid fiber ECC can significantly enhance the performance of structures incorporating these materials.

Analytical model for tensile strain hardening and multiple cracking behaviour of hybrid fiber-engineered cementitous composites.Ahmed, Shaikh; Maalej, M.; Paramasivam, P. (2007)An analytical model for the design of strain-hardening and multiple-cracking behavior of engineered cementitious composites (ECC) containing hybrid fibers is proposed. The model predicts first crack strength and ultimate ...
Grigoleit, Mark Ted (2008)The Constrained Shortest Path Problem (CSPP) consists of finding the shortest path in a graph or network that satisfies one or more resource constraints. Without these constraints, the shortest path problem can be solved ...
