emdedment length for epoxy bars

emdedment length for epoxy bars

(OP)
Hello guys,
I have a reinforced concrete wall already built.
 I want to anchor top and bottom reinforcement for the landing of a staircase. The wall is assumed as pinned and it is a non seismic region. What is the required embedment length for epoxy bars ?
Thank u.

RE: emdedment length for epoxy bars

Call or search a website of an epoxy bonding material manufacturer and they'll explain how to calculate this. It's a major pain, too lengthy for an answer here. Hilti is good.
There are some rules of thumb, but I don't want to ruin all your fun.

RE: emdedment length for epoxy bars

A Hilti product guide will supply most of what you need. If you chip a bearing seat into the wall, it's pretty straight forward. If you do it as a shear friction connection you are technically supposed to develop the dowels for Fy which can be tough.

I like to debate structural engineering theory -- a lot. If I challenge you on something, know that I'm doing so because I respect your opinion enough to either change it or adopt it.

Hi Kootk, what is a bearing seat ?

RE: emdedment length for epoxy bars

A bearing seat is just where you chip a ledge into the wall to provide a little direct bearing for your slab.
