This paper aims to evaluate the bonding properties of textile reinforced concrete (TRC)-confined concrete and corroded plain round bars.
The bonding performance of three types of specimens (not reinforced, reinforced after corrosion and reinforced before corrosion) was studied by a central pull out test.
The ultimate bond strength between the corroded steel bars and the concrete is improved when the corrosion ratio is small. After cracking, the degree of corrosion continues to grow and the ultimate bond strength decreases. TRC reinforcement has no detectable effect on the interfacial bonding properties between concrete and plain round bars when the corrosion of steel bars is small; however, when the concrete cracks under the action of rust corrosion, the TRC constraints can effectively improve the bonding performance of the two components.
TRC layer significantly delayed the chloride penetration rate, which can effectively limit the development of corrosion cracking.
