Rebar pull test

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have some #11 rebar dowels set in
concrete piers.  The contractor has
reason to believe that they did not get
fully developed and wants a pull test.
I don't have access to the design
tension load.  What load will I need to
have a testing agency apply to satisfy
Any ideas what agency might do this type
of test (Dallas area)?  Your typical
concrete lab doesn't do this.
