On the use of recycled PET for concrete reinforcement. In the present paper the results of some tests performed on concrete specimens reinforced with fibers made from waste polyethilene terephthalate (PET) bottles are reported. The tests are to be considered an approach to more extensive investigations on the use of PET as a reinforcing material in concrete and masonry structures. The tests provided interesting results, especially regarding the adherence between PET and concrete, suggesting a possible use of this material in the form of flat or round bars, or networks for structural reinforcement.
