In this paper, dynamic behaviour of fiber reinforced mortars manufactured with innovative binders based on calcium sulphoaluminate cement (CSA), supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs), gypsum (G) and hydrated lime (CH) was investigated. Fly ash (FA) and ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) were used to develop sustainable Portland-free cementitious materials. Polypropylene structural fibers (1% by mortar volume) were used to reinforce the cementitious matrix. Fresh properties of mortars were evaluated in terms of workability and specific mass. In addition, elastic modulus, compressive and flexural strength were determined up 28 days from casting. The dynamic behaviour was studied by means of Split Hopkinson Tensile bar having 60 mm in diameter. Preliminary dynamic results reported in terms of stress versus crack opening displacement were evaluated and discussed.
