Abstract: A new cement composite, the CEMTECmultiscale ®, developed and patented by the Laboratoire Central des Ponts et Chaussées (Paris, France) is presented in this paper. This cement composite has been tested under static bending and asymmetric fatigue bending. From this experimental study, the following comments can be made:
- The average modulus of rupture (MOR) is equal to 61.5 MPa;
- The average strain related to the average MOR is equal to 9.2 10-3.
- The stationary damage fatigue evolution of a specimen is dependent of the initial static damage of this specimen.
- Below a loading ratio R = 0.65, failure during bending fatigue test never appears with a specimen of CEMTECmultiscale ®.
- A gain of 6.5 % is observed between the bending static behavior of the specimens being previously loaded in fatigue and those not being loaded in fatigue.
