Bond and anchorage of embedded reinforcement: Background to the fib Model Code for Concerete Structures 2010
fib Task Group 4.5 Bond Models undertook a major review of the rules for bond and anchorage of reinforcement in the CEB-FIP Model Code 1990 as part of its preparation for the fib Model Code for Concrete Structures 2010 (fib MC2010). This bulletin is the outcome of that review. Its purpose is to describe the background to the rules proposed for fib MC2010, to record the source data employed in their validation as well as the assumptions made in derivation of the new proposals. It aims both to assist specialist users to understand the rules and to record the basis of the underlying physical model for the benefit of future revision committees.
