Tensile-Shear Bond Strength and Failure Between Aggregate and Mortar



The purpose of this study was to investigate the tensile-shear bond strength and failure of the mortar-aggregate interface. The techniques used are reported. The results indicate that the Mohr failure envelope in the tension-shear quadrant is almost a straight line and that the failure is essentially tensile in nature.
