Abstract

To investigate the bond behavior of an ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC)-filled bond-type anchorage for carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) tendons, both static tensile tests and impact tests were performed on 20 groups of specimens. The anchorages with embedded lengths of 50, 100, 150 and 200 mm were subjected to the static tension and longitudinal impact loads with drop heights of 150, 300, 600 and 900 mm. During the tests, the longitudinal tension and slip of the anchorage were obtained, and the effect of anchorage length and loading rate on the bond behavior was discussed. The results show that in the static tests, slip failure occurred for the anchorages with lengths from 50 to 150 mm, and CFRP bar ruptured as the length raised to 200 mm. When subjected to impact loads, slip failure was observed for all specimens. The damages on the CFRP bar to UHPC interface under impact loads were slighter than those under static tension, and correspondingly the dynamic bond strength was approximately half of the static one owing to the weakened mechanical interlocking. With increasing the embedded length, the bond strength and slip increased due to the radial constraining effect of outside steel tube. Based on the experimental results, a strain rate-dependent function was proposed to quantify the retention of bond strength under impact loads, and prediction formulas were established for determining the dynamic bond strength and critical embedded length of the bond-type anchorage.
