Reinforcement Development Lengths, Bar
Cutoffs, and Continuity Requirements
Sources of Bond Transfer
(1) Adhesion between concrete & reinforcement.
(2) Friction
Note: These properties are quickly lost for tension.

(3)Mechanical Interlock.
The edge stress concentration
causes cracking to occur.
Force interaction between the
steel and concrete.
Reinforcement Development Lengths, Bar
Cutoffs, and Continuity Requirements
Splitting cracks result in loss of bond transfer.
Reinforcement can be used to restrain these cracks.
Splitting Load is Affected by:
Minimum edge distance and spacing of bars
(smaller distance= smaller load)
Tensile strength of concrete.
Average bond stress along bar.(Increase in bond
stress larger wedging forces)

Typical Splitting Failure
Surfaces.
Reinforcement Development Lengths, Bar
Cutoffs, and Continuity Requirements
General splitting of
concrete along the
bars,either in vertical
planes as in figure (a) or
in horizontal plane as in
figure (b). Such splitting
comes largely from
wedging action when the
ribs of the deformed bar
bear against the concrete.
The horizontal type of splitting frequently begins at a diagonal crack.
The dowel action increases the tendency toward splitting. This
indicates that shear and bond failure are often intricately interrelated.
