An Evaluation of Bond Pullout Tests and Their Relevance to Structural Performance

Pullout test specimens are widely used in the ussessment of bond performance of reinforcement. However, there are objections to the form of such tests, particularly where ribbed bars are concerned, as the failure mode in pullout tests is very different from that in practical circumstances and failure strengths are considerably higher than design values.
