RE: masonry development length equations

BIll,
 
I believe it was the 2002 that had the different development length values for ASD and strength design.  I believe the 2005 started to reconcile that difference, but I am not completely sure.  That is why I need to dig out my editions to better be able to commnet.  I will endevour to do so a little later tonight.

The 1999 version of ACI 530 used ld=0.002*db*fs for allowable stress design and didn't include limit states design; the 2005 version and the version recently out for public comment uses an allowable stress design equation consistent with the strength design equation.  I don't have the other interim versions handy, but I seem to recall one version having different equations for ASD and strength design - I questioned how the rebar knows which method it was designed by!

Your best bet off hand would be to look at the recent versions of the ACI 530.  If you don't have previous versions, I might find sometime to summarize the iterations (I don't have them memorized).  As to the near future, the 530-08 revision were just out for public comment.  I could potentially dig them up as well if you did not take a look at them when I let the list know about the public comment period.  Other than that, you would need to attend the MSJC/530 committee meetings or know someone who does.  The 2011 cycle is about to get started.

Where can I find information on the recent history and near future of the ACI development length equations for masonry reinforcement?

The Florida Building Code references ACI 530-05 equation 3-15 for strength design but for allowable stress design they have replaced ACI 530-05 equation 2-9 with ld=0.002*db*fs.

Thanks.
