2.6.3 DESIGN EXAMPLE — DEVELOPMENT LENGTH IN A SPECIAL MOMENT FRAME
Requirement : Provide post-installed reinforcement for an addition to a special moment frame in a structure assigned to Seismic Design Category D ( high seismic ). in Figure 11 .
For 4 - # 9 top bars , probable moment strength :

Step 1 : Establish requirements for new bars . Existing construction : Special moment frame with 18 x 24- inch columns , 14 x 20-inch beams , 20-ft . bays , 4 ksi normal weight concrete , A706 Gr . 60 bar , 4 - # 9 top bars , 2 - # 9 bottom bars , # 3 hoops and cross ties @ 3-1 / 2 in . on center typical at joint . Factored w u
= D + L = 3.6 k / ft
New construction : ( N ) 14 x 20-inch beam as shown , 4 ksi normal weight concrete , ASTM A706 Gr . 60 reinforcement , 4 - # 9 top bars , 2 - # 9 bottom bars , # 3 hoops and cross ties at 3-1 / 2 in . on center
Determine shear force associated with plastic hinges at beam ends per ACI 318-19 Section 18.6.5.1 and 18.8.2.1
Effective depth of bars in beams : d = 20 - 1.5 - 0.375 - 1.128 / 2 = 17.6 in .

Step 3 : Calculate the required embedment for the new top and bottom bars using ACI 318-19 Eq . ( 18.8.5.1 ) and 18.8.5.3 ( a ):

Per 18.8.5.4 , portion of development length not within confined core = 41-24 = 17in .
