In this paper the results of an investigation about steel fibers bond strength in mortar matrix are presented. Pull-out tests were made with four different types of fibers (hookedend, crimped, flat-end, anchoraged), the fibers were embedded individually into a cement based sample with three different embedded length (10, 15, 20 mm). Another variable parameter of the experiment was the strength of the matrix (three different mixture were used), and hooked-end fibers with higher tensile strength and zinc surface coating were tested also. During the tests pull-out force and displacement were measured.
