    A review of the significance of various tests for the bond between reinforcing steel and concrete is presented. The effect of the more important bond strength parameters such as bar diameter, concrete cover, and spacing of bars is appraised, and the appropriate provisions of the standards for reinforced concrete construction are discussed. The effect of epoxy coating the reinforcing bar is introduced. A brief discussion of the significance of bond and bond tests for prestressed concrete is also included. David Watstein of the National Bureau of Standards was the author of this section prior to 1979.
