Abstract: This paper describes assessment and the full-scale test of a 3 ft. (914 mm) dia. column containing #11 (34.9 mm dia.) reinforcing steel lap-spliced in the critical region. The column modelled typical details of the Santa Monica Viaduct. Existing code equations predicted that inadequate development length was provided, but a 'first principles' approach indicated that satisfactory performance could be expected.
