Abstract: This paper presents a brief summary of an ongoing investigation on the bond characteristics of deformed reinforcing bars embedded in a SIFCON matrix. A significant increase in bond strength, bond stiffness, ductility, and pull-out work as well as improved cracking and failure mode are observed.
