Often times engineers will find the need to “drill and epoxy” reinforcing bars (rebar) into existing concrete in order to “develop” the rebar.  In those cases there have been various approaches to this common application.  Perhaps contributing to the many approaches to the application is the fact that the industry standards and codes have changed over the years, resulting in more complex design models than previously used.  With that said, there is now a relatively new industry standard that permits an engineer to design a “post-installed” rebar using the same manner that is used for a cast-in-place rebar.  This presentation will review various design models for post-installed adhesive anchors, introduce & overview the new industry standard for post-installed reinforcing bars, and provide examples of some applications where this provision can come in handy to an engineer.  

Kevin Davenport, P.E. is the Field Engineering Manager for the Simpson Strong-Tie's Southeast operations.  Kevin received his Bachelor’s of Science and Master’s of Science degree in Civil Engineering (with emphasis in Structural Engineering) from Clemson University. Prior to joining Simpson Strong-Tie he practiced for 5 years as a structural engineer for Walter P Moore & Associates in Atlanta, GA.  In addition to managing the southeast Field Engineering team, Kevin is also responsible for providing technical support and training to engineers on Simpson’s products related to concrete and masonry construction projects.  He is a member of American Concrete Institute, International Concrete Repair Institute, and various local chapters of the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations.
