Please help me my problem on my project right now. Actually it was all about construction joint on my cocnrete pouring at Pipe sleeper foundation. We lacked the supply of concrete, that s why it became a cold joint, my proposal to my client is that I will only chip on the construction joint only,then I will clean and will apply an epoxy bond before concreting. But, my client wanted us to chipped the concrete with the length the same as development length 40 x d of the bar? Is it realistic based on the American concrete institute?
Please answer it.
