Abstract

This study investigates the influence of mixing and curing temperature on bond behavior of reinforced concrete. The properties examined were compressive strength, splitting tensile strength and bond stress between reinforcing bar and adjacent concrete at three different mixing and curing temperatures (150C, 300C and 450C). For measuring mechanical strength, cylindrical concrete specimens (100 mm dia. x 200 mm height) were prepared. Locally available materials were used to prepare these samples. Bond stress-slip relationship was observed to determine the mechanical properties of the interface between steel re-bars and concrete. Results of compression strength test shows that lower mixing and curing temperature exhibits higher early age strength and comparatively low long period strength in compare to high mixing and curing temperature. Interpretation of bond stress- slip relationship demonstrates that D15DC sample gives 27.4% more bond strength than D45DC sample and P15DC sample gives 38.5% more bond stress than P45DC sample. Average bond stress of deform bars displays 36% more than plain re-bars. This study contributes mainly to explore the bond behavior for different mixing and curing temperature and enlighten the matter that hot environmental condition has great impact bond strength of reinforced concrete structure.
