Where spacing of the reinforcing bars is insuffi- ... minimum clear distance between parallel bars in a layer For lap splice design and construction, the ACI 318 Building Code requires the Engineer to indicate locations and lengths of all lap splices on the structural drawings. Sections 7.6.1 and 3.3.2 (minimum spacing for concrete placement); Section 7.7.1 (minimum cover for protection of reinforcement); and Section 10.6 (maximum spacing for control of flexural cracking).

ACI guidelines for Reinforced Concrete : Some of the guidelines by ACI (American Concrete Institute) are given below to help in design of reinforced concrete beams. CHAPTER 4. Spacing of Reinforcement. ANSI American National Standards Institute. For Greece, the maximum aggregate grains dimension for usual concrete, is 32 mm and for self-compacting concrete is 16 mm. Design of Columns Introduction ... other shapes and a minimum of six bars in spirally reinforced columns. ANCHORAGEThe securing of reinforcing steel in concrete either by straight embedment, hooks, or headed bar. Bar Spacing Minimum bar spacings are specified to allow proper consolidation of concrete around the reinforcement. So, for example, if the clear distance between the outside of a reinforcing bar and the face of a 6-inch-wide concrete beam is specified to be 2 inches, the tolerance allows it to be no less than l 5/8 inches. The minimum spacing between two reinforcement bars should be at least equal to the maximum coarse aggregate dimension plus a margin of 5 mm.

Steel Reinforcing Bars ... allowable bar spacing and minimum ACI 318-11: Shear reinforcement; Eurocode 8: ... and ACI 318. Where reinforcing bars of two sizes are lap-spliced in tension, industry practice is to use the larger of the tension lap splice length for the smaller bar, or the tension development DETAILS AND DETAILING OF CONCRETE REINFORCEMENT 315-3 ... the number and spacing of top bars Maximum Spacing between Bars in Tension Normally these spacing will be as mentioned below : (a) For beams, these distances are 300 mm, 180 mm and 150 mm for grades of main reinforcement of Fe 250, Fe 415 and Fe 500, respectively. ment or with less reinforcement than the minimum amount ... the definition of "Deformed reinforcement" (see ACI 318, ... other required welding of reinforcing bars Slab on Grade Reinforcing Design ... it is recommended that #5 bars be used as a minimum as bars of smaller diameter ... spacing. How is spacing of rebar calculated in a reinforced section? Minimum clear spacing between parallel bars in a layer should be equal to diameter of the bar but not less than 1 inch. ARC WELDINGA process by which the two pieces of steel to be joined are heated by an arc formed between an electrode and the steel.
