Rheological properties of the developed composites were investigated by varying FA and water contents to achieve desirable fiber dispersion. A suitable mix design, in which polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) fibers were introduced to provide tensile ductility, was determined. The effect of key parameters such as w/b ratio and curing age on the mechanical properties of carbonated RMC-SHC was evaluated. Adequate binder content and w/b ratio was necessary for desirable fiber dispersion. Lower water contents and longer curing ages contributed to the strength development of RMC-SHC by improving the fiber-matrix interface bond and enhancing the formation of a dense carbonate network.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/90095
