RE: Cost Effective Mechanical Lap Splice?

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

If the contractor uses 7,000 psi concrete to get the required lap length short enough, can he go back to 5,000 psi concrete beyond the lap splice?

I can't see any reason why not, but I could be missing something.

 

TIA,
