Abstract

The multiple fiber pull-out tests were conducted with steel wires and alkali resistant glass fiber strand in order to characterize the behavior of interface of fiber and cementitious matrix. Type I portland cement paste was used as a matrix. The specimens were tested with different curing regime. A simple method based on a recently developed fiber debonding and pull-out model was used to identify and evaluate the parameters at interface. The experimental data are presented on the parameter of shear stiffness of a fiber-matrix boundary layer, the shear bond strength, the frictional bond strength and the interfacial specific surface energy as a function of fiber embedded length.
