Tag: Splices Development, Anchorage, and Splices of Reinforcement

Steel reinforcement must be bonded to the concrete sufficiently so that the steel will yield before it is freed from the concrete. Despite assumptions made in the past to the contrary, bond stress between concrete and reinforcing bars is not uniform over a given length, not directly related to the perimeter of the bars, not equal in tension and compression, and may be affected

Tag: Splices Shear Splices

In buildings, splices of members subjected principally to shear should develop the strength required by the stresses at point of splice. For groove welds, however, the full strength of the smaller spliced member should be developed. In highway bridges, shear splices should be designed for the larger of the following: 75% of the strength of the member or the average

Tag: Splices Tension Splices

Design rules for tension splices are substantially the same as those for hanger connections. In buildings, splices should develop the strength required by the stresses at point of splice. For groove welds, however, the full strength of the smaller spliced member should be developed. In highway bridges, splices should be designed for the larger of the following: 75% of the
