In this paper, the flexural ductility of lap-spliced reinforced concrete (RC) beams is experimentally investigated.Twenty-four specimens were designed and manufactured for laboratory experiments. Concrete compressive strength, amount of transverse reinforcement over the splice length, and the diameter of longitudinal bars were selected as the main variables. The ductility of tested specimens is evaluated based on a previously defined ductility ratio. Results show that concrete strength and amount of transverse reinforcement over the splice have major effects on ductility. With an appropriate amount of transverse reinforcement, a satisfactory ductility response for different concrete strengths can be obtained. The CSA-A23.3-04 Standard provisions on bond strength and ductility of lap-spliced RC beams are evaluated and discussed. This study shows that the provisions in predicting the bond strength of lap-spliced concrete beams are adequate but may not achieve a satisfactory performance for ductility. An equation is proposed to achieve the appropriate ductility.
