Abstract: HPFRCC7 will be the seventh workshop in a series dealing with High Performance Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites (HPFRCC). The six prior workshops have led to a definition of HPFRCC that mostly suggests a technical challenge. That is, composites that exhibit a strain hardening tensile stress-strain response accompanied by multiple cracking (and relatively large energy absorption capacity). Besides this mechanics related definition there are other features which make a cement composite “high performing” like workability, durability and robustness. Researchers have tried to reduce fiber content to a necessary minimum. By reducing fiber content, they are simplifying the production process, helping make standard mixing procedures acceptable, and opening the way to large-scale practical applications.
