Re: Rebar Hooks & Bend Details

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


Most structural "standard drawing" sets I have seen usually have a generic detail for 90/180 degree primary reinforcement hook details and 90/135 degree details for hoops, stirrups, and ties.  I would not consider this unreasonable especially in high seismic zones since the detailer could easily miss some of these settle detail differences.

Rebar Hoks & Bend Details

I’m submitting a project for the first time to a plan reviewer in Las Vegas.  I’ve been asked by the plan reviewer to detail rebar hooks and bends.  I’ve never been asked to do this before by any other plan reviewer.  In my General Notes I always state the following: “DETAILING OF CONCRETE REINFORCING BARS AND ACCESSORIES SHALL CONFORM TO THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF ACI-315, "DETAILS AND DETAILING OF CONCRETE REINFORCEMENT" ACI SP-66" DETAILING MANUAL". PLACING OF REINFORCING BARS SHALL CONFORM TO THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF ACI 315R "MANUAL OF ENGINEERING AND PLACEMENT DRAWINGS FOR REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES" AND CRSI "MANUAL OF STANDARD PRACTICE".
Do engineers in Las Vegas have to repeat the typical bend details of ACI on their drawings?  How is this typically handled?
Thanks for any insight.
