Bond is one of the main prerequisites for an efficient stress transfer between reinforce-ment and concrete. In spite of large amount of research performed so far, further studies are necessary, particularly considering the in-creasing range of practical applications.
The use of high performance materials combined with the introduction of new design concepts has increased the range of bond relevant problems. On the other side, the growing need for assessment, retrofitting and strengthening of the existing structures re-quires a better understanding of the various aspects of bond performance.
The focus of the 5th Bond in Concrete conference is to connect researchers and practicing engineers and to act as a platform to discuss the recent advances in various aspects of bond in concrete. This follows the pattern of previous conferences held in Brescia (2012), Budapest (2002), Riga (1992) and Paisley (1982).
A very important aspect of the Bond in Concrete 2022 will be the new Model Code 2020. In particular, various improvements of the design and the new concept for evaluation of the existing structures introduced in Model Code 2020 will be discussed.
