Welding of reinforcement bars is a practical means of developing the force transfer required in many connection. The following recommendations should be followed when welding reinforcement to avoid damage to the bars and to provide the required force transfer:

Design of Welding for Reinforcement:

The ultimate strength of reinforcement welds is determined by: Where, = 0.70 = tensile capacity of the weld = length of the weld = thickness of the weld at the throat Typical weld details of reinforcement bars is shown in figure below:
