This paper presents a compressive test program designed to determine the mechanical and self-sensing properties of cement-matrix composites containing carbon fiber. Two kinds of mixes with 0.5% and 0.75% carbon fiber （CF） were prepared. The mechanical and piezoresistive properties of the cement-matrix composites were evaluated at 28, 90, 180, 270, and 360 d. The results show that the mechanical properties were enhanced in most cases. However, the compressive strength of carbon fiber reinforced cement-matrix composites decreased compared with the reference mix at the early curing ages, which agrees with the results mentioned in the literature. What is worth to mention, the 360 d compressive strength of carbon fiber reinforced cement-matrix composites reached the same level as that of the reference. Moreover, both negative and positive piezoresistivity were observed during the experiments. The amplitude of piezoresistivity was found to change with the variation of moisture content, and was not directly proportional to the magnitude of the stress. In the elastic stage with smaller stress amplitude, the piezoresistivity amplitude was larger. When the stress amplitude was multiplied, the piezoresistivity change was not synchronous. The gauge factor for the composite with 0.75% CF was higher than that of the composite with 0.5% CF and commercially available strain gauges.
