An investigation was conducted to determine the general behavior and strength of lapped bar splices which varied in length and method of splicing. The maximum bond resistance developed in the splice and the slip of bar was determined for two types end sizes of reinforcement. The resulting data clearly Illustrated the manner in which the stress was transferred from one lapped bar to the other and the relative merits of the two types of bars as well as the effectiveness of the two methods of splicing was shown.
