Tensile testing seems to be a standard procedure for most engineering processes. There are standards for tensile testing for most materials including GFRP rebars. So it seems to be strange to see research relevance in such an well known and daily performed test. The authors will focus on the diameter influence and possible effects and influences of conclusions from non-perfect tensile tests.
