There is an increasing interest in the use of
fiber-reinforced polymeric composites in building and
construction. However, little information is available
on the effects of civil engineering environments on the
interfacial properties of these materials. This paper
presents results on the effects of water, artificial
seawater, and simulated concrete pore solution at 60 deg
C on the interfacial laminar shear strengths of glass
fiber/polymer composites made with three different
