Use of headed bars as anchorage to reinforcement

Traditionally, anchorage of reinforcement has been achieved through the bond strength between the concrete and the reinforcement, or with an L-shaped bar, or a combination of the two. Headed reinforcement bars are an alternative method for anchoring reinforcement in concrete members. This paper explains where headed bars can be used to improve the design and buildability of the concrete section and how to ensure there is sufficient anchorage strength.
