In this paper the implementation and validation of a modified steel bar model including bond-slip of longitudinal bars that was proposed in a companion paper is discussed. The model is developed on the key assumption of linear slip field along the steel bar with different configurations at the ends of the bar. The simplified model is capable of predicting the axial slip displacement with suitable accuracy compared with a refined model but with considerably fewer computational steps. The proposed model avoids nested iterations in the context of fiber model discretization of a section that requires the representation of all actions in terms of stress and strain. The model is applied to two component tests - one with poor and another with improved reinforcing detailing. Findings from the simulations indicate that the proposed model is more suitable for use in connections with poor detailing and pronounced slip in the plastic hinge zones. © 2012 American Society of Civil Engineers.
