Abstract: Since fiber reinforced composites are often used in an aggressive environment (bridge decks, drainage pipes etc.), it is necessary to estimate their durability and ability to maintain superior mechanical properties in such conditions. One microscale mechanism that has a dominant influence on achieving desirable mesomechanical behavior, such as multiple cracking, is the fiber-matrix interfacial bond. In the present study, the effect of chloride attack and calcium leaching on the bond properties is experimentally investigated. To this end, a series of tests is performed, in which a single fiber is pulled out of the cementitious matrix under displacement control. The tests are carried out on reference specimens that were kept under room conditions and on specimens that were exposed to accelerated degradation. Both, chemical and frictional bond, are calculated from the measured load-displacement curves, and the effect of environmental exposure on these parameters is clarified.
