Original Abstract

The article deals with the current problem of determining long-term reliability of non-metallic reinforcement in concrete structures. The alkaline environment of concrete with a pH higher than 12.0 affects the glass fibres degradative, whereas this degradation presents by reduction of their mechanical characteristics, resulting in a decrease in the tensile strength of the whole composite. The article summarizes the results of the ongoing experimental program so far, which aims to quantify this influence.
