© 2019In this study, the performance of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) confined and unconfined Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) specimens exposed to sulfate attack under static and cyclic loading were investigated. Two types of FRP fabrics (Basalt (BFRP) and Carbon (CFRP)) and two types of fly ash (Low calcium (LCFA) and high calcium (HCFA)) were studied. In addition, FRP fabrics as a rehabilitation material was also investigated for the sulfate deteriorated specimens. LCFA-SHCC specimens showed superior performance than HCFA-SHCC specimens in the sulfate environment. In addition, confined specimens with FRP fabrics significantly improved compressive strength, ductility, and durability of the specimens.
