Hilti Rebar Design


Trust Hilti products and solutions to solve the toughest post-installed rebar challenges

Designing post-installed rebar using the development and splice provisions of ACI 318 Chapter 12 and Chapter 21 is not the same as designing post-installed rebar using the anchoring provisions of ACI 318 Appendix D. Since the bar is being installed at deeper embedments and being used to develop lengths for seismic design, shear dowels and starter bars as well as tension for compression lap splices, reinforcing bar theory must be applied and adhesive anchor systems must be qualified for recognition and use under the 2015 IBC before being used for reinforcing bar installation.

Hilti Rebar Method for Engineers

Hilti’s advanced and unique design solutions allows you to solve structural design challenges you as an engineer might be facing.  Ever had problems designing a concrete staircase connection into a thin wall? Did you ever have to design post installed rebar for a retaining wall where the starter bars where left out or in the wrong position and the bending moment was just too big?  This is the structural engineering solution you were missing.  If you need more information contact our engineering department in Johannesburg.
