48 bar diameter's.I am not sure how far of an overlap you must make with the rebar when piecing two together in one vertical row. A couple of pieces are 5' 6 and a 3'6 to make 9'...its #5; anyone know the formula?

So on a #5 bar it would be 48 x 5/8" so it would be a 30" overlap.

How did you come up with that???48 bar diameter's.

So on a #5 bar it would be 48 x 5/8" so it would be a 30" overlap.

It is different here.

Do you know where the OP is?

How did you come up with that???

The math or why we go by 48 bar diameters?

The math is 48 x 5/8" (Because a #5 bar is 5/8" diameter)

and 48 x 5/8" = 30", so that would be the overlap.

if you had #8 bars, it would be 48 x 1", so a 48" overlap.

The larger the bar, the more overlap that is needed.

Who's code is that. That is not DC code on over laps? is that florida Code?The math or why we go by 48 bar diameters?

and 48 x 5/8" = 30", so that would be the overlap.

if you had #8 bars, it would be 48 x 1", so a 48" overlap.

The larger the bar, the more overlap that is needed.

It is either Florida Building Code or ACI standards, not sure which, but we follow the more restrictive standard and have always went by the 48 bar diameter.Who's code is that. That is not DC code on over laps? is that florida Code?

I will look it up in FBC to see what it says.

I know we had some snow 1/4" in Tampa around 1976, I didn't realize it snowed in Miami as well.I was there when it snowed one year in miami, south florida really remember that??

In the late 80's we had some snow flurries, but it didn't stick, it looked like someone threw sand on my truck, some areas lost power for 3 days and people were freaking out.

Ever looked at the coastal requirement if your area are in "hurricane area"? Tie downs, windows and garage doors can be tough to meet.
