Abstract: In this research, uniaxial tensile test for PVA-ECC (ECC with Polyvinyl alcohol fiber) and bending shear test of PVA-ECC beams is conducted to obtain fundamental properties of PVA-ECC members. Parameters are ratio of lateral reinforcement and volume percentage of PVA fiber. From the results of beam tests, shear strength increases as volume percentage of PVA fiber increases. In the uniaxial tensile test of PVA-ECC, it can be recognized that difference of fiber volume percentage influences maximum stress and ultimate strain. Predicting method for shear strength of beams is proposed based on the tensile strength obtained from uniaxial tensile test of PVA-ECC. Shear strength of PVA-ECC beams can be evaluated well by this calculation method.
