Reasonable evaluation of the bond performance between steel bars and concrete has important theoretical and practical value for reinforced concrete structural design and seismic analysis. The stress (τ) – strain (ε) formula is corrected based on a pull-out test, and the load (F) – deflection (w) curves are analyzed according to the change of stiffness before and after crack appearance based on a beam test, and new estimation formulas are given. At the same time, the bond properties are compared between all-lightweight shale ceramsite concrete (ALWSCC) and normal weight concrete (NWC). The results show that the bond property of ALWSCC is better than NWC. The bond stresses of pull-out specimens and beam specimens are the same or similar under equal conditions, but the ultimate load (F0) of the former is about 3.66 times that of the latter, the peak slip (S0) of the latter is 4.80 times that of the former, and the latter has significant splitting or pull-out failure characteristics. The peak slip (S0) in this paper is larger than that in the related literature, where the pull-out specimens are no more than 10 mm, and are generally less than 2 mm, while the beam specimens are not more than 3 mm, with the others generally around 1 mm. The research results have reference values and guiding significance for similar experimental research and engineering practice.
