Presentation: "Mechanical Couplers and Anchors"
In the world of reinforced concrete construction, mechanical rebar couplers and anchors are often used out of necessity as required by code, but also for a variety of constructability reasons.
The presentation “Mechanical Rebar Splicing and Anchoring” exposes engineers to over ten different mechanical couplers and anchors manufactured by nVent LENTON. Instruction is provided regarding common structural applications for each product, relevant sections of ACI 318 (including recent changes that facilitate mechanical anchor usage), and available design aids (specifically for weldable couplers and mechanical anchors).
Engineers will leave the presentation with a greater understanding of when and where to use mechanical couplers/anchors for improving speed of construction, reducing congestion, improving safety, and facilitating future expansion.
Attendees MUST wear closed-toe shoes.
