Abstract: The effects of embedded steel bars on the strength of concrete cylinders as affected by various parameters were investigated. These parameters were the size and the length/diameter ratio of the cylinders, the positioning of the steel bar, the bar size and the cube strength of concrete. For a length/diameter ratio of 1.0, the experimental results differed significantly from the calculated values based on the correction formula recommended in BS 1881, Part 120. The inclusion of steel up to 4% by volume in 100 mm × 100 mm cylinders did not have any detrimental effect, but for deformed high tensile steel bars of 13-20 mm diameter, increases of up to 9% in the measured strengths over those of the control specimens were observed.
