The contribution reports on the fatigue behavior of fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) bars, consisting of endless E-glass fibers embedded in a polyester (PE) matrix and anchored in a cylindrical steel tube which is filled with a quartz sand/PE-resin mortar. At the beginning the mechanical material properties, the anchorage design and the bond behavior of the bars are shortly outlined.
