Reinforced concrete is a widely used construction material. Its properties depend on the bond between the reinforcing bar and concrete as much as the compressive strength or properties of the reinforcing bar because of component of construction expose to both flexural and bond together compressive loads. In this paper, the bond properties of concretes with different mix designs were investigated according to the results of compressive, flexural, bond, and flexural-bond tests. The data mining (DM) process was used to determine relationships among the test results and DM algorithms. Seventeen modeling techniques within WEKA were applied to the experimental data for the prediction of bond properties.
