Abstract: As a new class of fibre reinforced cementitious materials, mechanical behaviours of SHCC materials are characterized by various factors. Therefore, they are capable to be improved by various measures for various application purposes. Matrix tailoring is an encouraging technique to improve their mechanical behaviours. In the present paper, the Fly ash (FA) is
mixed into ECC to reduce the crack tip toughness by reducing the interface bond. The research results indicate that cement replacement FA can sharply reduce the interface bond. Besides, high FA content provided enough initial faults, and it also reduced the interfacial bond, therefore leading to an increased complementary energy, Hence, achieving a more ductile behaviour. FA enhances the bridging function of fibre by extending matrix flaws. This also indicates that the particle shape of admixture is also very important for tensile behaviour.
