`LL = diam( 8 )* "LappingFactor" `

Enter a value for all fields

The **Rebar Lapping Length** calculator computes the length overlap needed at rebar joints based on the size of the rebar (**rS**) and the lapping factor (**LF**).

**INSTRUCTIONS -** Enter the following:

- (
**rS**) The size of rebar which is used to compute the diameter for lapping considerations. - (
**LF**) The lapping factor is the multiple of the diameter of the rebar to specify the lapping distance. 40 (default) and 60 are common.

**Lapping Length (LL):** The calculator returns the length of rebar lap in inches. However, this can be automatically converted into other length units (e.g. centimeters) via the pull-down menu.

**Total Weight of a Slab with Rebar** - Spanish Version:
**Calculadora de Barras de Refuerzo**

When the dimensions of your slab or wall exceed the length of a single piece of rebar, it is required to lap the rebar and tie the bars them to create the added length. There are a few considerations. First, the length of the lap is often specified as 40 times the diameter of the rebar. In this case, 40 is lapping factor. 60 is also a common factor, but the engineering specifications should always be applied. See these YouTube videos to better understand rebar lap:

Second, the typical length of rebar is 40' and 60' in the United States.
