The main mechanisms of strengthening and toughening cementitious materials due to fiber addition are now generally understood. However, there is still enormous work ahead in terms of tailoring a composite for a given level of performance, especially when performance is specified not only in terms of mechanical properties, but also in terms of rheology, fresh properties, workability, production method, durability and the like.

High Performance Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites (HPFRCC) represent a class of cement composites whose stress-strain response in tension undergoes strain hardening behaviour accompanied by multiple cracking, and leading to a high strain capacity at failure.

The primary objective of this International Workshop was to provide a compendium of up-to-date information on the most recent developments and research advances in the field of High Performance Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites.

About forty contributions from leading world experts are assembled in these proceedings and provide an authoritative perspective of the subject. Special topics include impact and fire resistance, scale effects, self-compacting mixtures, properties under reverse cyclic loading, seismic requirements, hybrid composites, structural applications, and modeling.

Target readers: graduate students, researchers, fiber producers, design engineers, material scientists
