 Title & Authors
Bond behavior of lightweight concretes containing coated pumice aggregate: hinged beam approach
Beycioglu, Ahmet; Arslan, Mehmet E.; Bideci, Ozlem S.; Bideci, Alper; Emiroglu, Mehmet;
This paper presents an experimental study for determining the bond performance of lightweight concretes produced using pumice aggregate coated with colemanite-cement paste. For this purpose, eight hinged beam specimens were produced with four different concrete mixtures. 14 mm deformed bars with development lengths were selected constant for all test specimens. All the specimens were tested in bending and load-slip values were measured experimentally to determine the effect of colemanite-cement coated pumice aggregate on bond performances of lightweight concretes. Test results showed that, colemanite-cement coated pumice aggregate increases compressive strength and bond performance of the lightweight concretes, considerably.
