Bond and Development in New Types of
Concrete and Reinforcement
Meeting: Technical session on “Bond and Development in
New Types of Concrete and Reinforcement” during The ACI
Concrete Convention and Exposition – Spring 2020, March
29-April 2, 2020, Chicago/Rosemont, IL; sponsored by Joint

concrete. The use of alternative types of concrete and/or
reinforcement may affect the bond characteristics of
reinforcing bars and, consequently, their development and
lap-splice requirements. This session will present recent
advances in the characterization of bond and development in
