The double asymptotic homogenization method originated for analyzing physical systems containing two or more length scales was adopted to predict the characteristic of 1-3 type cement-based piezoelectric composites for the first time. The piezoelectric properties of 1-3 type cement-based piezoelectric composites were measured and comparisons between the experimental data and predicted values validate the effectiveness of the present analytical model. Moreover, numerical discussions and experiments show that one should choose proper volume fraction of constituents to achieve the best performance of the 1-3 type cement-based piezoelectric composites.
