Abstract: This paper presents a research on developing Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC) with locally available materials in the Netherlands, i.e. Portland cement, blast furnace slag (BFS) and limestone powder. Considering the advantage of the replacement of Portland cement by BFS and limestone powder, it can be expected that the use of BFS and limestone powder in ECC not only reduces the cost and enhances the sustainability, but also enhances the workability, mechanical properties and durability of ECC. In order to optimize the mix proportion, four mixtures with different limestone powder content were investigated with compressive test, four-point bending test and uniaxial tensile test. The mixture M3, with the Portland cement to BFS to limestone powder ratio of 1:1.2:2 by weight, exhibits the best deformation capacity at 28 days. It was also found that there is a strong correlation between the tensile strain capacity of ECC and the margin between ultimate tensile strength.
