Currently I am working on resolving a request for information. We have piles with rebar that hooks into the concrete foundation. In some of these piles the rebar has been broken and cut. My boss would like me to have new rebar welded to the outside of these piles. I am trying to figure out where in the AISC manual I can find an equation to figure out how long the weld will need to be and what size weld I will need. I'm just an intern trying to do a good job. Please help. I have looked through the weld section and I noticed equation (8-2b). Can this be used to figure out the length and weld diameter for welding two round steel objects together? Also, what type of weld would you use for welding a pipe and rebar together?
