A series of 3-point beam tests were performed on the cementitious composites specimens reinforced with high strength, high denier discrete polyester fibers. The fiber length, fiber volume fraction, and cement matrix mixture were varied to study their effect on flexural behavior of composites. The peak-load capacity and toughness of beam specimens were shown to be improved with addition of fibers.
