Abstract: In order to provide a scientific basis for choosing the appropriate development length models, a probabilistic calibration method was developed to comprehensively evaluate the accuracy and applicability of seven typical deterministic development length models for deformed reinforcing bars (rebar) in normal and high-strength concrete. The influences of important factors (including compressive strength of concrete, concrete cover thickness, rebar diameter, tensile stress of reinforcement bar, residual tensile strength of cracked concrete, friction on bearing surface and effective bearing angle) on development length were investigated based on the partly cracked thick-walled cylinder model. Then a probabilistic development length model involving both aleatory and epistemic uncertainties was proposed based on the Bayesian theory and the Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method. Meanwhile, key probabilistic characteristics of development length were presented and a probabilistic method was suggested to calibrate available deterministic development length models based on the confidence interval and the confidence level. Finally, the accuracy and applicability of available deterministic development length models under different conditions were calibrated comprehensively.
