Abstract : The objective of the study was to investigate, test, and evaluate methods of butt splicing reinforcing bars, including mechanical splices, thermit splices, and welded splices on 408, 432, and 437 structural steel. Tests were performed to evaluate comparatively the tensile behavior of the connection, conductivity, and cost-time factor of fabrication. Test results are presented in graphical and tabular form.
