Our previous investigation into the means for decreasing the peak interfacial shear stress in bond-type anchors for fiber-reinforced polymer rods [1,2] is extended to include the case where the bonded length of the rod is divided into two regions, each having a potting material with a different elastic modulus. Based on the analytical model developed earlier, a detailed parametric analysis ofthe influence ofsuch parameters ofa bipotted anchor as the relative lengths ofanchorage zones and the pottant moduli is carried out for two schemes ofanchor loading.
