RE: waterstop

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The picture seems incomplete.  If you are using #11 and #14 bars, you must
have a thick wall, otherwise it's horribly over-reinforced.  Isn't the
waterstop in the end of the wall?  If so, I can't picture why it should
interfere with the horizontal wall bars.

	There is a 2" seismic gap between two concrete structures.
	And 9" rubber waterstop(3-1/2" embeded in each concrete face)
	 is provided vertically at this seismic gap.
	But the concrete cover is 2".  So interference is occured at
horizontal reinforcement(#11@12) not vertical reinforcement(#14@9").
	Can I bent waterstop to avoid interference with horizontal rebars if
we do not move or relocate the reinforcement in both direction ????????
	What's method is possible ???
	I hope your advice...
