Summary This book captures the state of the art of the durability of fibre-reinforced strain-hardening cement-based composites (SHCC) and the durability of structures or structural elements manufactured in full or in part with this class of modern construction materials. Highlights include: Reflection on durability performance of existing applications in patch repair, a water reservoir and highway bridges, Guidelines for tensile testing towards durability assessment of cracked SHCC, New crack pattern related ingress rate indices for water and chloride into cracked SHCC, The influence of low and high temperatures on SHCC durability performance, he mechanism of crack control reducing ASR and corrosion rate, and results on chloride-induced corrosion of embedded steel reinforcement, Self-healing of cracks in SHCC, A conceptual durability design framework for SHCC and R/SHCC structures and members
