Environmentally friendly FRP composites, made of natural fibers and bio-based polymer matrices, may be used as externally bonded reinforcement for civil structures or buildings subjected to moderate outdoor conditions, in replacement of traditional carbon/epoxy systems. However, a major drawback of natural fibers is their sensitivity to moisture which can affect both the mechanical properties of FRP composites and their adhesive bond with concrete. This research aims at studying the influence of hygrothermal ageing on the...
