At the reinforced concrete structure, the utilization of the headed bar has provided simpler installation, less congestion of reinforcement and more effective anchorage compared to conventional reinforcing bars anchorage by hooks and bends. A literature review related to the use of headed reinforcement are exhibited. The paper discusses the behavior anchorage of headed reinforcement, and the application of at beam column joint and as shear reinforcement. The review of headed bar includes historical background, the available commercial product and the summary of the experimental results that uses this application. Based on current study the suggestion for further research are provided.
