Development length and lap length are two important terms in
SURVEYING
reinforcement. But many of us get confused with the difference
between development length and lap length. In our previous article we
have already discussed what is development length of bars, today we FOLLOW US ON
will discuss what is lap length of bars. TWITTER

During placing the steel in RC structure if the required length of a bar is Tweets by @civil_daily
not sufficiently available to make a design length then lapping is done.

Lapping means overlapping of two bars side by side to achieve required

## In case of RCC structure, if the length of reinforcement bars need to be

extended, splicing is used to join two reinforcement bars for
transferring the forces to the joined bar. POPULAR POSTS

## LAP LENGTH FORMULA:

LAP LENGTH IN TENSION:
The lap length including anchorage value of hooks shall be

## 2. For direct tension – 2Ld or 30d whichever is greater.

The straight length of lapping shall not be less than 15d or 20 cm.

## LAP LENGTH IN COMPRESSION:

The lap length in compression shall be equivalent to the development
length in compression computed but not less than 24d.

## FOR DIFFERENT DIAMETER BARS:

In case of bars having different diameter are to be spliced, the lap
length is calculated on the basis of smaller diameter bar.

LAP SPLICES:
Lap splices should not be used for the bars having larger dia than 36
mm. In that case, welding should be done. But if welding is not

## Lap length in tension (for plain Grade-1 MS bar) including anchorage

value is 58d. So eliminating the anchorage value the lap length = 58 –
2*9d = 40d

## Lap length for compression bar is equal to the value of development

length calculated i.e 43.5d.

## LAP LENGTH FOR M20 CONCRETE:

Columns – 45d

Chrome for Ent
Policies & More. Dep

Beams – 60d

Slabs -60d.

## So if we need to lap 20 mm dia column bars, we have to provide a

minimum lap of 45 * 20 = 900 mm.

I have already subscribed. And I used to raed your all pages . Its
very knowledgeable one. Give or updates more pictures so that we
can more imagine it.

## But some other constructions like metro in Hyderabad, laping one

over another by use threading.there how to design.

## Pls suggest how to remove the production of each labour engage in

construction activities

When two different size of bars are spliced then lap length shall be
calculated on the basis of smaller dia. Why ?

## is there a lapping length calculation difference using by welding the

bar or just simply tying with tie wire?

## Pls tell me..
