Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC) has been proposed to be one of the most promising repair materials. When ECC is used as a repair material, ECC can accommodate larger deformation, induced by differential shrinkage or external load, while maintaining a high load capacity. Moreover, the tight crack width of ECC retards the penetration of aggressive agents and thus improves the durability of the repaired structures. This paper presents an investigation on the performance of ECC for concrete repairs subjected to differential shrinkage. The surface cracking in the repair materials and the interface delamination were experimentally studied.
