The challenge of repairing cracked or damaged concrete has been increasing worldwide. Several cement-based materials, such as ferrocement, fiber-reinforced cementitious mortar (FRCM), and textilereinforced mortar (TRM), have been developed and used to address the aforementioned challenge. Self-consolidating mortar is required to accelerate structural concrete repair using cementitious composites (e.g., ferrocement, FRCM, and TRM). In this study, a high-strength selfconsolidating mortar is developed using higher-volume (50% by weight of cement) blended pozzolans. Experimental results exhibit potential in terms of flowability and strength. Therefore, this type of cementitious selfconsolidating mortar can be used to expedite concrete repair or strengthening using cementitious composites.
