The paper presents a part of an experimental campaign consisting of quasi-static and impact tensile experiments on three different types of strain-hardening cement-based composites (SHCC) as well as on their constitutive cementitious matrices . The investigation on different SHCC types was intended for analysing the effect of matrix composition and fibre type on the strain rate sensitivity of the composites and for enabling the formulation of material design recommendations for impact resistant SHCC. The dynamic tests were carried out by means of a Modified Hopkinson Bar (MHB) installed in the DynaMat Laboratory in Lugano, Switzerland, which enabled the characterization of the dynamic material behaviour under direct tensile loading in terms of force-displacement relationships.
