Splitting of concrete caused bypullout of deformed rebars is investigated. The influence of specimen cross section size and geometryr on the relationship between the components of stress and relative displacement at the intejface is evaluated. Phase measurement inter- ferometry is used for accurate mapping of the splitting cracks. The measured crack profiles, material model, and a fracture criterion are used in a hybrid experimental/numerical approach to evaluate the unknown normal component of traction at the inter- face.
