The Bond Stress x Slipping relationship
AbstractA few international standards regulate the use of the high strength concrete, which may not be adopted generally without consideration of the differences that can be among the materials in different countries. This paper presents the results of an experimental study consisting of pull out tests of Brazilian steel, with five different concrete strengths, 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 MPa, and three different steel bar diameters, 16.0, 20.0 and 25.0 mm. The experimental results for the bond stress vs. slipping relationship were compared with the provisions of the CEB and with some theoretical formulations found in literature. One statistical analysis is made and equations for predicting the bond stress were derived.
