2.0 HOW ARE THEY DESIGNED ?
2.6.2 DESIGN EXAMPLE — LAP SPLICE
Requirement : Provide post-installed reinforcing for a new balcony extension on an existing concrete structure as shown in Figure 11 .

Step 1 : Determine area of flexural reinforcing for cantilever moment . Existing construction : ( E ) slab , 10 in . thick , 4 ksi normal weight concrete , top bars # 9 @ 8 in . on center , bottom bars # 8 @ 12 in . on center , transverse bars # 5 @ 16 in . on center top and bottom
New construction : ( N ) tapered slab as shown , 5000 psi sand lightweight concrete , ASTM A615 Gr . 60 reinforcement Factored moment and shear at face of cantilever :
M u
= 25 ft-k / ft
V u
= 6k / ft d = 8 inches ( Figure 12 )
Note : Although this is sand-lightweight concrete , the value of λ for use with the shear friction equation is taken conservatively as 0.75 in the absence of specific information to support a higher value — see Table 19.2.4.1 ( b ) of ACI 318-19 .
Shear reinforcement : use # 5 at 16 in . on center for bottom bars
Step 2 : Set design conditions .
• Drilling method : Rotary-hammer drilling
• Orientation of connection : Horizontal / wall position
• Installation and in-service temperature : 90˚F
• Type of concrete : Normal weight , 4 ksi
• Condition of concrete : Dry
• Choice of adhesive based on condition : HIT-RE 500 V3
• Type and location of bars : As shown on drawings , position to avoid existing reinforcing , but no further than 4 inches from existing flexural reinforcing . b
( N ) bars installed in drilled holes
Step 3 : Calculate the required embedment ( splice length ) fro the new top and bottom bars . Top bars :
( E ) wall d = 8 in .
Note : Since the new # 8 bars are being spliced with existing # 9 bars , the required splice length per ACI 318-19 25.5.2.2 is the larger of the development length of the larger bar (# 9 ) and the tension lap splice length of the smaller bar (# 8 ).
