Continuous developments in concrete technology and reinforcement materials have been made in recent years to improve the structural performance, durability and sustainability of reinforced 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 new types of concrete and reinforcement, which include ultra-high-performance concrete, fiber-reinforced concrete, shotcrete, high-strength steel, corrosion-resistant reinforcement, and shape-memory alloy bars.
