Study on the Effect of Cover Thickness on Bond Behavior between Deformed Bar and Shale Ceramsite Concrete
In this paper, the effect of cover thickness on bond behavior between deformed bar and shale ceramsite concrete was analyzed by four groups of pull-out tests which with different cover thickness. And three reinforced concrete pull-out tests used for comparative analysis were prepared at the same time. We obtained a series of experimental data and based on these data a more accurate formula was summed up. This formula has a high value in guiding the practical project to choose the cover thickness.
