Abstract: High speed tensile tests were conducted using a servo-hydraulic testing machine on carbon, AR glass and PE fabric reinforced cement composites. The high speed testing procedure and data processing method are presented. A good correlation was found between the properties of the fabrics and the composites, with the carbon composite exhibiting the highest strength and PE the lowest. A Multiple cracking behavior was observed for all composite systems tested under high speed loading. The PE composites exhibited the largest strain capacity with higher cracking density. The differences in tensile behavior of the various composites were correlated with the differences in the role of the fabric materials.
