Post-Installed Reinforcing Bar Guide
2.0 HOW ARE THEY DESIGNED ?
Step 1 : Determine area of dowel steel required . Existing construction : ( E ) shear wall , 16 in . thick , 4 ksi normal weight concrete
14 " embedment
 Reinforcement requirement based on required shear transfer using shear friction V u = 9k / ft 2 ( N ) # 5 dowel @ 16 " x 12 " 23 "
 Required area of reinforcement per 22.9.4.2 , Eq . ( R22.9.4.2 ) ACI 318-19 Provided area of reinforcement V u 9 A vf = = 0.2 in 2 / ft 2 Φf y μ 0.75 x 60 x 1.0 # 5 at 16 in . x 12 in . over face of wall . Figure 10 — Dowel detail ( not to scale ). roughened surface , 1 / 4 in . amplitude Hilti HIT-RE 500 V3 Adhesive anchor system in hammer drilled hole
Step 2 : Set design conditions .
• Drilling method : Rotary-hammer drilling
• Orientation of connection : Horizontal / wall position
• Installation and in-service temperature : 70˚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 dowels : Hooked bars , in the face of the existing wall at uniform spacing vertically and horizontally
Step 3 : Calculate the required embedment ( development length ). ACI 318-19 development length equation ( 25.4.2.4a ):
Step 4 : Specification Provide post-installed dowels at size , spacing and embedment as indicated on construction documents ( see Figure 10 ).
Dowels : ASTM A615 Grade 60
Anchoring system : Hilti HIT-RE 500 V3 epoxy , install as per Manufacturer`s Printed Installation Instructions ( MPII ), concrete shall be dry during dowel installation unless otherwise permitted in the MPII . Drill holes using a rotaryhammer drill with carbide bit . Locate existing reinforcing prior to drilling — do not damage ( E ) reinforcing without prior authorization of the EOR . ld
