This module calculates development and splice lengths for deformed steel rebar in concrete. Since typical development lengths are readily available in tables, this module is primarily for developing tables of development lengths when unusual conditions affect the lengths.
The module uses ACI 318-05 sections 12.1, 12.2, 12.3 and 12.5 for straight tension & compression development and hooked tension development.
Two major categories of development calculation are available; straight development and hooked development. The module calculates the basic tension development length for straight and hooked cases, and compression development for straight cases only.
