Abstract
This research analyzes the effects of the previous wetting and drying treatments of cellulosic fibers on the fiber–matrix bond strength of cement based composites. First, three kinds of fibers—abaca, cabuya and sisal—were subjected to five cycles of water wetting and subsequent drying. The resulting changes in the morphology, mechanical properties, drying kinetics and thermal stability were determined with scanning electronic microscopy (SEM), tensile tests and thermogravimetric analysis (...
