Are there any circumstances when a contractor may "stab" reinforcing bars or dowels into wet concrete instead of securing the bars before the pour? I have a contractor who wants to "stab" bars into a wet concrete footing and subsequently slip-form a traffic barrier. I have not found anything in the ACI or AASHTO Codes on this subject. Thanks for your help.
