Abstract:
Describes improvements in the performance characteristics of cements due to carbon fiber reinforcement. In particular, the structure, physical properties, mechanical behavior, and durability aspects of carbon-cement composites using pitch-based fibers are discussed. The various possible applications of these composites in structural and nonstructural applications are enumerated and future research needs to be identified.
