RE: Development length in Shotcrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
See Paragraph 5.4, Reinforcement, Guide to Shotcrete, ACI 506R-90
(Reapproved 1995). "As a structural material, reinforcement in shotcrete
is designed using the same criteria as in reinforced concrete." 

The criteria is different for "limited structural loading". 

Also see Paragraph 5.4.2, Bar Reinforcement of the same document "If the
design allows, lapping of the reinforcing splices should be avoided.
Lapped bars should be spaced apart at least three times the diameter of
the largest bar at the splice."

To my knowledge, you would use the same development / lap lengths as is
specified in ACI 318.  To my knowledge, ACI 318 would by large still
apply.  But I don't have anything at the moment to back this up with
than my opinion.

And no, none of the other 506 documents appear to address the issue
