Abstract: The rate effect on concrete tensile strength can be modeled by the description of crack extension in a fictitious fracture plane [1,2].The plane represents the initial, internal damage and the geometry of the final fracture plane. In the paper, the same approach is applied to model the failure envelope for the biaxial loading condition of static lateral compression and axial impact tensile load. The predicted failure envelope is compared with data from experimental work.

Abstract: For the analysis and design of RC structures, there is a fundamental assumption that the strain in an embedded reinforcing bar is the same as that in the surrounding concrete. Therefore, bond forces must be developed on the interface between concrete and steel, such as to prevent significant slip from occurring at the interface. An end anchorage may be considered reliable if the bar is embedded in to concrete a prescribed distance known as the development length of the bar. If in the beam the actual extended length of a bar is equal to or greater than this required development length, no premature bond failure will occur. Research has indicated that the development length was influenced by tensile strength of concrete, surface and diameter of bar, cover distance, bar spacing, transverse reinforcement, and other factors. Current design methods in different countries’ Codes, attentions are directed toward providing adequate length of embedment, which will ensure development of the full strength of the bar.
