Abstract: In recent years, the application of engineered cementitious composite (ECC) in structures
subjected to cyclic fatigue loading, such as highway bridges, has become a hot topic.
However, the strength and ductility of conventional ECC are not high enough, limiting its
application in highway bridges under high-stress. In this work, we configured an ultra-high
performance engineered cementitious composite (UHP-ECC) with a compressive strength of
approximately 120 MPa, a tensile strength of up to 12 MPa, and a tensile strain capacity of
more than 8%. The four-point bending test was used to study the fatigue performance of
UHP-ECC at four different stress levels (0.5, 0.65, 0.8, and 0.9). The mid-span deflection of
the specimen, the opening displacement of the bottom of the specimen and the crack width
were monitored. Eventually, the number of fatigue cycles under different stress levels was
obtained.
