Bond strength values correspond to concrete compressive strength f′c = 2,500 psi (17.2 MPa). For concrete compressive strength, f’c, between
0.1
2,500 psi (17.2 MPa) and 8,000 psi (55.2 MPa), the tabulated characteristic bond strength may be increased by a factor of (f'c / 2,500) [For SI:

Bond strength values are for sustained loads including dead and live loads. For load combinations consisting of short-term loads only such as
wind and seismic, bond strengths may be increased 40 percent.

Temperature range B: Maximum short term temperature = 162°F (72°C), maximum long term temperature = 110°F (43°C).
Short term elevated concrete temperatures are those that occur over brief intervals, e.g., as a result of diurnal cycling. Long term concrete
temperatures are roughly constant over significant periods of time.
For structures assigned to Seismic Design Categories C, D, E or F, bond strength values must be multiplied by N,seis = 0.65.

Bond strength values correspond to concrete compressive strength f′c = 2,500 psi (17.2 MPa). For concrete compressive strength, f'c, between
0.1
2,500 psi (17.2 MPa) and 8,000 psi (55.2 MPa), the tabulated characteristic bond strength may be increased by a factor of (f'c / 2,500) [For SI:
0.1
(f'c / 17.2) ]. See Section 4.1.4 of this report for bond strength determination.
2
Characteristic bond strengths are for sustained loads including dead and live loads. For short-term loads including wind and seismic, bond
strengths may be increased 40 percent.
3
Temperature range A: Maximum short term temperature = 130°F (55°C), Maximum long term temperature = 110°F (43°C).
Temperature range B: Maximum short term temperature = 162°F (72°C), Maximum long term temperature = 110°F (43°C).
Short term elevated concrete temperatures are those that occur over brief intervals, e.g., as a result of diurnal cycling. Long term concrete
temperatures are roughly constant over significant periods of time.

Bond strength values correspond to concrete compressive strength f′c = 2,500 psi (17.2 MPa). For concrete compressive strength, f’c, between
0.1
2,500 psi (17.2 MPa) and 8,000 psi (55.2 MPa), the tabulated characteristic bond strength may be increased by a factor of (f’c / 2,500) [For SI:

Characteristic bond strengths are for sustained loads including dead and live loads. For load combinations consisting of short-term loads only
such as wind and seismic, bond strengths may be increased 40 percent.

Temperature range A: Maximum short term temperature = 130°F (55°C), Maximum long term temperature = 110°F (43°C).
Temperature range B: Maximum short term temperature = 162°F (72°C), Maximum long term temperature = 110°F (43°C).
Short term elevated concrete temperatures are those that occur over brief intervals, e.g., as a result of diurnal cycling. Long term concrete
temperatures are roughly constant over significant periods of time.
For structures assigned to Seismic Design Categories C, D, E or F, bond strength values must be multiplied by N,seis = 0.65.

For SI: 1 inch ≡ 25.4 mm, 1 lbf = 4.448 N, 1 psi = 0.006897 MPa.
For pound-inch units: 1 mm = 0.03937 inches, 1 N = 0.2248 lbf, 1 MPa = 145.0 psi
1
Bond strength values correspond to concrete compressive strength f′c = 2,500 psi (17.2 MPa). For concrete compressive strength, f’c, between
0.1
2,500 psi (17.2 MPa) and 8,000 psi (55.2 MPa), the tabulated characteristic bond strength may be increased by a factor of (f’c / 2,500) [For SI:
0.1
(f’c / 17.2) ]. See Section 4.1.4 of this report for bond strength determination.
2
Characteristic bond strengths are for sustained loads including dead and live loads. For load combinations consisting of short-term loads only
such as wind and seismic, bond strengths may be increased 40 percent.
3
Temperature range A: Maximum short term temperature = 130°F (55°C), Maximum long term temperature = 110°F (43°C).
Temperature range B: Maximum short term temperature = 162°F (72°C), Maximum long term temperature = 110°F (43°C).
Short term elevated concrete temperatures are those that occur over brief intervals, e.g., as a result of diurnal cycling. Long term concrete
temperatures are roughly constant over significant periods of time.

1
Bond strength values correspond to concrete compressive strength f′c = 2,500 psi (17.2 MPa). For concrete compressive strength, f’c, between 2,500 psi (17.2
MPa) and 8,000 psi (55.2 MPa), the tabulated characteristic bond strength may be increased by a factor of (f’c / 2,500)0.1 [For SI: (f’c / 17.2)0.1]. See Section 4.1.4 of
this report for bond strength determination.
2
Characteristic bond strengths are for sustained loads including dead and live loads. For load combinations consisting of short-term loads only such as wind and
seismic, bond strengths may be increased 40 percent.
3
Temperature range A: Maximum short term temperature = 130°F (55°C), Maximum long term temperature = 110°F (43°C).
Temperature range B: Maximum short term temperature = 162°F (72°C), Maximum long term temperature = 110°F (43°C).
Short term elevated concrete temperatures are those that occur over brief intervals, e.g., as a result of diurnal cycling. Long term concrete temperatures are
roughly constant over significant periods of time.
4
For structures assigned to Seismic Design Categories C, D, E or F, bond strength values must be multiplied by N,seis = 0.65.
