Splice Performance Evaluation of Enamel-Coated Rebar for Structural Safety

This project is aimed at further understanding of the splice mechanism and capacity of enamel-coated rebar in concrete beams. The objective is achieved by further analyzing the test data collected under the recently-completed MTI/MoDOT Collaborative Structures Research Program and testing additional 12 reinforced concrete beams for comparison. Additional documentation on the splice performance of enamel-coated rebar from this study will allow the principal investigator to make a strong case for potential deployment of the enamel coating technology in various state departments of transportation.
