ABSTRACT Even though lots of strong fibers such as carbon, aramid and vinylon fibers are contained in mortar, they do not work as reinforcements unless the mortar itself and the mortar/fibre interface have sufficient strength. On the other hand, less weight materials which have often lower strength need to be effectively reinforced to resist the acting loads.
