This paper deals with various works carried out in the field of Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC). ECC exhibits various properties like ductility, strain-hardening behavior, controlled crack propagation etc. This article reviews the major works on experimental researches carried out to find the best mix, studies carried to find the compression, flexural and tensile characteristics of ECC. The results of each study are highlighted and also the benefits of such study are discussed.
