study is to explore the cyclic behavior of slender DRCBs made of HPFRCC with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) ﬁbers.

Experimental tests were conducted with six DRCB specimens with a length-to-height (ln / h ) of 3.5 to investigate

the eﬀect of the HPFRCC and the amount of diagonal and transverse reinforcement on the cyclic behavior of

was also proposed, considering the contributions of the HPFRCC and the amounts of diagonal and transverse
