This article discusses how to calculate an anchorage and lap length for steel ribbed reinforcement subjected to predominantly static loading using the information in Section 8 of Eurocode 2. Coated steel bars (e.g. coated with paint, epoxy or zinc) are not considered. The rules are applicable to normal buildings and bridges.
Law firm Bond Dickinson LLP summarises a recent case in which the structural engineers were not held responsible after a basement excavation went wrong.
