A question, I have been asked to review some calculations and they are using Appendix D to calculate the development length of building pier dowels into a drilled pier. I believe that the dowels don't fit the definition of an anchor so Appendix D doesn't apply the length should be calculated using Chapter 12 "Development and Splices of Reinforcement"
