Re: Re-bar Congestion

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Based on the limited information posted by Mike Brown, the following are
possible alternates:

1.  Use mechanical splice (coupling).
2.  Stagger adjacent bar splices at alternate floors.
3.  Review design for possible reduction in rebar size and/or increase
rebar spacings at upper floors.

Let us do not loose sight that a good design should always take into
consideration constructability related issues in addition to any
building code arbitary minimum requirements. The approximately 2 per
cent reinforcement ratio appears high.
