In this paper the bond mechanism of steel reinforcement to concrete and the shear capacity are examined. Tests have been conducted on conventional vibrated concrete (CVC) and self compacting concrete (SCC). The results from pull out tests on 200 mm cube specimens show that for the same compressive strength the maximum bond stress for SCC is as high or higher than for CVC and this for all tested diameters (8, 12 or 16 mm). The bond stress increases with increasing bar diameter. The specimens were loaded at constant rate and during testing the slip of the bars and the applied load were recorded. The fourpoint loading tests point out a slightly decreased shear capacity of SCC in respect to CVC with the same compressive strength. The shear capacity decreases with increasing shear span-to-depth ratio a/d (2 to 3) for all the tested concrete types. During the testing the maximum applied load was recorded and the crack and failure mechanism were observed. © RILEM 2010.
