Extension rebar because there is a block

Extension rebar because there is a block

I am Hamzah Fansuri from Mitsui Engineering and Shipbulding Co. Ltd. Please help for rebar problem. We will install the rebar towards z. But above there is an obstacle like an anchor. I beg your opinion on the issue if I cut the rebar and added the rebar beside it, or bent the rebar towards x? Is there an ACI rule on the issue?
I ask for directions.
Thank you.

Best Regards,

Can you provide a sketch?


RE: Extension rebar because there is a block

If you're just dodging an anchor, you could potentially:

1) shift the rebar over to avoid the anchor.

2) cut the rebar at the anchor and provide a non-contact, standard ACI lap splice across the discontinuity.

You haven't given us much information to work with here however. This could be a tension member or seismic hinge where lap splicing is prohibited. The bars could also be too large for lap splicing...

I like to debate structural engineering theory -- a lot. If I challenge you on something, know that I'm doing so because I respect your opinion enough to either change it or adopt it.

for the sketch
please find the attached file photos of rebar exposed obstacle.

Please commen this problem?
Thank you.

Best Regards,
