Abstract

In this chapter, the effect of elevated temperatures on strain-hardening cement-based composites (SHCC) is reported. Key features of SHCC such as tensile strength and strain capacity, compressive strength, failure modes, the fiber–matrix interface, and spalling behavior are discussed. Different testing conditions are covered, including not only residual but also high temperature tests. Experimental results addressing various temperature levels (ranging from ambient temperature to 1000 °C) were used to investigate basic knowledge of the thermomechanical response of SHCC under conditions of both uniaxial tension and compression.
