Effect of matrix modification on the durability of cementitious composites reinforced with aligned Ensete fibre Vrije Universiteit Brussel
including low density, low cost, abundance, comparable strength, non-toxicity and minimum environmental impact. However, when using natural fibres in a pure Portland cement matrix, the mechanical strength is significantly ...

Evaluation of self-healing in cementitious materials with superabsorbent polymers through ultrasonic mapping Vrije Universiteit Brussel
The maintenance and repair of concrete infrastructure covers an increasing portion of the annual construction budget. For this reason, self-healing cementitious materials have been investigated thoroughly in literature. One way to achieve an effective self-healing composite is by promoting their inherent repair ability through the inclusion of superabsorbent polymers (SAPs). Thanks to their large absorption capacity upon contact with water, ...
