Title: The new Anchorage and Splice Length provisions in AS3600
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:The provisions for anchorage of tensile reinforcement in the Australian Standard for Concrete Structures AS3600 have recently been revised and subject to final ratification will become part of the next edition of that Standard (likely to be AS3600-2008). In this paper, the new provisions are presented and compared to the provisions in ACI 318-05 (1), Eurocode 2 (2) and the soon to be superceded AS3600-2001 (3). Predictions using all the code approaches are compared with test data and the results of a parametric study of the effects of various factors on the development lengths and minimum lapped splice lengths specified by each Standard are presented and critically reviewed.
