Experimental investigations to examine the effect of concrete sedimentation characteristics on pull-out bond strengths are reported. Concretes of the same compressive strength but varying settlement and bleeding were used with plain round, square, twisted, and deformed bars. The general trend of the results indicated that increased concrete settlement in all cases led to reduced bond of rigidly positioned, horizontal bars, even with small depths of plastic concrete beneath the bars.
