Lets say you have a large unreinforced slab (infinite thickness) and you embed a rebar vertically ld deep. Do you think the bar will yield before the concrete breaks? Appendix D cone shear calc is only for headed stud or hook. I think the rebar will yield before the concrete breaks but my coworker thinks otherwise. Isn't that what development length is? It is the distance the rebar need to develop full strength? What do you guys think?
