This study presents an experimental program conducted to investigate the bond strength of FRP bars in recycled-aggregate concrete compared to the one in normal-aggregate concrete for the improved evaluation of results. The experimental program contains thirty six specimens tested using direct pull-out test. In this study, glass, carbon and basalt FRP bars are used with 12 mm diameter and bar bond lengths of 5d, where d is the bar diameter. The FRP bars are casted in different recycled-aggregate concrete strengths of 30, 45 and 60 MPa. The behaviour of bars in normal-aggregate concrete strength of 30 MPa is used as a benchmark and its behaviour is compared with the ones in the recycled-aggregate concrete. The impact of the concrete strength considered is identified based on the gain in the bond behaviour. The experimental results demonstrate the prospect of the recycled aggregates applied as an alternative to normal aggregates in the FRP reinforced concrete. In addition, the use of the recycled aggregate increases the bearing friction behaviour between the FRP bars and concrete.
