Abstract

Rebar pullout tests are performed and the relationship between cracking and the components of stress and displacement at the rebar-concrete interface is evaluated. Particular attention is given to the influence of specimen size and geometry. Phase measurement interferometery is used for accurate measurement of surface displacement and cracking. A confinement parameter is proposed to relate the two stress components at peak load. This parameter is geometry dependent but essentially size independent.
