Hence, there is reserve bond capacity beyond that implicitly assumed by the development length calculation. 5. The specimens having confining steel exhibited marginally (<0.02 in.) greater slip at 125 ksi than those that did not. This observation is counterintuitive although the difference is small and may be attributed to experimental scatter. The hook test series was intended as proof tests of the pres- ent AASHTO hook development requirements given by Equa- tion 14. These tests have shown that the present requirement is (a) Slip at Different Stress Levels adequate to develop up to 125 ksi in 10 ksi concrete in cases where adequate cover and confinement--based on current design requirements--are provided. 2.8.3 Summary and Conclusions The objective of this portion of the study was to evaluate existing AASHTO requirements in reference to the use of high-strength reinforcement (represented by ASTM A1035) with respect to issues of bar splice development and hooked bar anchorages. Spliced beam straight bar development tests and hooked anchorage pullout tests were performed as proof tests of the current AASHTO requirements as expressed by Equations 12 and 14. The small number of splice beam tests conducted augmented the extensive study by Seliem et al. (b) Slip at 125 ksi (2009) and extended the available database to higher strength Figure 36.

The results demonstrate that the present AASHTO require- ments for both straight bar tension development and hooked anchorage tension development may be extended to develop Figure 36b shows only the slip values reported at 125 ksi sorted bar stresses of at least 125 ksi for concrete strengths up to 10 ksi against (1) concrete strength (5 or 10 ksi); (2) design bar stress provided adequate cover and confinement are provided.
