Abstract
In this work the mechanical behaviour of ductile cement composites reinforced with natural fibre nonwovens is evaluated under flexural and direct tension tests. The effect of the nonwoven structure –weight and thickness on the mechanical behaviour is also investigated. Results obtained indicate that the nonwoven natural fibre reinforcement leads to cement composites with substantial enhancement of the ductility.
