    A review is presented of the significance of various tests of bond between reinforcing steel and concrete. The effect of the more important parameters such as bar diameter, strength of concrete, and spacing of bars, as determined in some recent researches, is appraised, and the appropriate provisions of the standards for reinforced concrete construction are discussed. A brief discussion of the significance of bond and bond tests for prestressed concrete is also included.
