THE DISTRIBUTION OF STRAIN IN THE CONCRETE OF PULLOUT SPECIMENS

EVIDENCE SECURED ON PULLOUT STRAINS IS PRESENTED FOR TWO STRENGTHS OF CONCRETE (NOMINALLY 3000 AND 5000 LB. PER SQ. IN.), AND FOR THREE DIAMETERS OF PLAIN AND DEFORMED RAIL-STEEL BARS (3/8, 5/8, AND 3/4 IN. ROUND). FOR THE PLAIN BAR PULLOUT SPECIMENS, LENGTHS OF EMBEDMENT VARIED FROM 3 TO 4 IN. FOR THE DEFORMED BAR PULLOUT SPECIMENS THERE WERE THREE MINIMUM DEPTHS OF CONCRETE COVER. IN MOST RESPECTS THE PLOTTED DATA ARE STRIKINGLY CONSISTENT. BECAUSE STRAINS WERE MEASURED ONLY AT CONCRETE SURFACES IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SHOW QUANTITATIVELY JUST WHAT WAS HAPPENING NEAR THE ADJACENT SURFACES OF STEEL AND CONCRETE, AND THE TESTS, AT BEST, LEAVE SOME QUESTIONS YET TO BE ANSWERED RELATIVE TO THE SPECIFIC DISTRIBUTION OF BOND STRESSES ALONG AN EMBEDDED BAR. THE EVIDENCE DOES DEMONSTRATE AND EMPHASIZE THE PROGRESSIVE NATURE OF BOND RESISTANCE AND ALSO THE SIMILARITY OF ACTION FOR PLAIN AND DEFORMED BARS DURING THE EARLIER STAGES OF LOADING. /AUTHOR/
