A report summarising a 2018 Research Award-winning project. The project developed recommendations for the casting position factor !1 used in the determination of basic bond strength of reinforcement in EC2.

This project was a collaboration between Dr Benny Suryanto, John Cairns and Martin Aitken of Heriot-Watt University, and the MPA The Concrete Centre.

The recommendations of the project will contribute to the safe design of concrete structures. They will also add to the safe and economical adaptation of existing structures to modification or alternative use. This will contribute to the life cycle of these structures.
