Reinforced Concrete Design-I

Lec-07
Bond and Development Length

By
Dr. Attaullah Shah

Swedish College of Engineering and Technology


Wah Cantt.

The basic assumption of the


RCC design is that the strain
in concrete and reinforcing
steel is the same. If the
reinforcing steel slips at its
ends, this is not valid. Hence
it must be ensured that
sufficient bond strength is
developed at the interface of
steel and concrete to avoid
slippage of the steel.

Bond Strength and Development length


Two types of bond failure can
be expected in reinforcing bars:
Direct pull out of the steel bars,
when ample concrete confinement
is provided in the form of large
spacing of bars or large concrete
cover
Splitting of concrete along the bar
when cover confinement or bar
spacing is insufficient

b. Actual Distribution of Flexural Bond Stress


Pure bending case
Concrete fails to resist tensile
stresses only where the actual
crack is located. Steel T is
maximum and
T max = M / jd .
Between cracks , concrete
does resist moderate amount of
tension introduced by bond.
u is proportional to the rate of
change of bar force, and
highest where the slope of the
steel force curve is greatest.
Very high local bond stress
adjacent to the crack.

Beam under transverse loads,


According to simple crack
sectional theory, T is proportional
to the moment diagram and u is
proportional to shear force
diagram.
In actual, T is less than the simple
analysis prediction everywhere
except at the actual cracks.
Similarly, u is equal with simple
analysis prediction only at the
location where slopes of the steel
force diagrams are equals .If the
slope is greater than assumed,
bond stress is greater; if the slope
is less bond stress is less.

ULTIMATE BOND STRENGTH AND


DEVELOPMENT LENGTH
Types of bond failure
Direct pullout of bars
(small diameter bars are
used with sufficiently
large concrete cover
distances and bar
spacing)
Splitting of the concrete
along the bar (cover or
bar spacing is
insufficient to resist the
lateral concrete tension
resulting from the
wedging effect of bar
deformations)

a. Ultimate Bond Strength


Direct pull out
For sufficiently confined bar, adhesive bond and friction are overcome as the
tensile force on the bar is increased. Concrete eventually crushes locally ahead
of the bar deformation and bar pullout results.
When pull out resistance is overcome or when splitting has spread all the
way to the end of an unanchored bar, complete bond failure occurs.
Splitting
Splitting comes from wedging action when the ribs of the deformed bars bear
against the concrete.
Splitting in vertical plane
Splitting in horizontal plane: frequently begins at a diagonal crack in
connection with dowel action. Shear and bond failures are often interrelated.
Local bond failure
Large local variation of bond stress caused by flexural and diagonal cracks
immediately adjacent to cracks leads to this failure below the failure load of the
beam.
Results small slip and some widening of cracks and increase of deflections.
Harmless as long as the failure does not propagate all along the bar.
Providing end anchorage, hooks or extended length of straight bar (development
length concept)

Consider a bar embedded in a


mass of concrete
P = * [*db2/4]
P = *[Lb**db]
db
Lb

= P / [Lb**db] < max

= P/ [*db2/4] < max

P < max * [Lb**db]

P < max * [*db2/4]

To force the bar to be the weak link: max * [Lb**db] > max * [*db2/4]
Lb > (max / max)* [db/4]

Steel Limit, max


Using the bilinear assumption of ACI 318:

max = + fy
Lb > (fy / max)* [db/4]
Lb > fy * db / (4*max)

Concrete Bond Limit, max


There are lots of things that affect max

The strength of the concrete, f c

Type of concrete (normal weight or light weight)


The amount of concrete below the bar
The surface condition of the rebar
The concrete cover on the bar
The proximity of other bars transferring stress to
the concrete
The presence of transverse steel

Concrete Strength, fc
Bond strength, max, tends to increase with concrete
strength.
Experiments have shown this relationship to be
proportional to the square root of fc.

Type of Concrete
Light weight concrete tends to have less bond
strength than does normal weight concrete.
ACI 318-08 introduces a lightweight concrete
reduction factor, , on sqrt(fc) in some equations.
See ACI 318-08, 8.6.1 for details

Amount of Concrete Below Bars


The code refers to top bars
as being any bar which has
12 inches or more of fresh
concrete below the bar
when the member is poured.
If concrete > 12 then
consolidation settlement
results in lower bond
strength on the bottom side
of the bar
See ACI 318-08, 12.2.4(a)

Surface Condition of Rebar


All rebar must meet ASTM requirements for deformations
that increase pullout strength.
Bars are often surface coated is inhibit corrosion.
Epoxy Coating The major concern!
Galvanizing

Epoxy coating significantly reduces bond strength


See ACI 318-08, 12.2.4(b)

Proximity to Surface or Other Bars


The size of the concrete cylinder tributary to
each bar is used to account for proximity of
surfaces or other bars.

Presence of Transverse Steel


The bond transfer tends to cause a splitting plane
Transverse steel will increase the strength of the splitting
plane.

b. Development Length

Development length is the length of embedment necessary to develop the full tensile strength of bar, controlled by
either pullout or splitting.
In Fig., let
maximum M at a and zero at support
fs at a T = Ab fs _
Development length concept total tension force must be transferred from the bar to the concrete in the
distance l by bond stress on the surface.
To fully develop the strength T = Ab fy
ld , development length
Safety against bond failure: the length of the bar from any point of given steel stress to its nearby end must be at least
equal to its development length. If the length is inadequate, special anchorage can be provided.

3. Design extra stirrups for points where bars are
cutoff in zone of flexural tension (ACI 12.10.5)

Bar Cutoffs - General Rules


All Bars

Bar Cutoffs - General Rules


Positive Moment Bars
Rule 3. Structural Integrity
Continuous interior beams without closed
stirrups. At least one-fourth of the positive

Continuous perimeter beams. At least onefourth of the positive moment reinforcement


required at midspan shall be made continuous
around the perimeter of the building and must be
enclosed within closed stirrups or stirrups with
135 degree hooks around top bars. The required
continuity of reinforcement may be provided by

Bar Cutoffs - General Rules


Negative Moment Bars
Rule 6. Structural Integrity
Perimeter beams. In addition to satisfying rule 6a,
one-sixth of the negative reinforcement required at
the support must be made continuous at mid-span.
This can be achieved by means of a class A tension
splice at mid-span (ACI 7.13.2.2).

Moment Resistance Diagrams


Moment capacity of a beam is a function of its depth,
d, width, b, and area of steel, As. It is common
practice to cut off the steel bars where they are no
longer needed to resist the flexural stresses. As in
continuous beams positive moment steel bars may be
bent up usually at 45o, to provide tensile
reinforcement for the negative moments over the
support.
