Experimental Study on Bonding Mechanism between Corroded Bolts and Grout
In this study, an experiment program is presented to study the bonding mechanism between corroded bolts and grout and in particular the influence on bonding behavior in terms of different corrosion sections along anchor. With respect to four groups of manufactured bolt specimens, the noncorroded and the corroded, respectively, on the front, middle and rear section along anchor, a pullout test is conducted to reveal the relationship between load and loading-end slip and to investigate the bond-stress distribution characterization along full anchor. Experimental results show that corrosion product, acting as lubricating effect at the interface between bolts and grout, can result in the degradation of bonding mechanical behavior. Meanwhile, corrosion on different sections along anchor has a different effect on the anchorage capacity of bolts. Especially, corrosion on the front section induces the greatest decrease of anchorage capacity of bolts. Thus, it is concluded that the front section along anchor is the key region affecting the bonding mechanical behavior between bolts and grout.
