Masonry buildings sometimes require that additional vertical wall reinforcement be specified.
I am familiar with a procedure for retrofitting deformed bars into an existing wall; however, in some cases where the wall has been poured solid there are no empty cells available for the usual retrofit method.
I’m wondering if a retrofit could be specified in a manner similar to that used in Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) construction where a vertical slot is cut into the wall and a threaded rod is grouted in place with a washer and nut at the top and post-installed anchor (adhesive or mechanical) at the base.
Thanks in advance.
