Re: splice of welded wire mesh

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
That's what I remembered from jobs long ago...  just checking per ACI 12.8 and it has a fancy formula that gets me a minimum of 6" for a 4" wire spacing.
"Mr. Topete" is prepping me for when my daughter starts dating...  Not for a long time, but I'm sure sooner than I want it to happen...  Please call me David, David.

What is the minimum lap splice of welded wire mesh/fabric?  If anyone has that handy, thank you in advance...
