Shear Friction Design for Post-Installed Reinforcement in Concrete Overlays

Join us for an insightful session on shear friction design provisions of ACI 318 and shear friction design for post-installed anchors in concrete overlays. 

Seminar Overview:

Structural strengthening of an existing concrete structure using shear dowels is a primary application for post-installed rebar. Though this is commonly done to improve performance of concrete slabs and structures experiencing earthquake and seismic loads, it can also be used for renovations where the design loads of a structure have increased.  In this session, we will review the shear friction design provisions of ACI 318 Chapter 22 and discuss alternative research-based design methods to resist the interface shear across the shear plane in concrete-to-concrete connections.

Presented By: Chris Nelson, Lead Field Engineer - Michigan, HILTI North America
