Bond Strength and Flexural Behaviour of RC Beams with Epoxy-Coated Reinforcing Bars

Bond and flexural behaviour of concrete beams with fusion-bonded epoxy-coated reinforcing bars have been investigated under static load, repeated load, and sustained load. Embedment lengths were varied in the static load tests, (16, 20 and 28 diameters for 25mm bars, and 16, 20 and 33 diameters for 12mm bars). Both coated and uncoated bars were employed in all three series of tests. Relative bond behaviour and flexural performance of epoxy-coated bars are evaluated and discussed in comparison with uncoated bars. Professor A.R. Cusens and Z. Yu
