ANCHORAGE VALUE OF HOOKS AND BENDS

In the case of bars in tension, a standard hook has an anchorage value equivalent to a straight length of 16 times dia. of the bar and a 90-degree bend has an anchorage value of 8 times dia. of the bar. The anchorage values of standard hooks and bends for different bar diameters are given below (as per SP 16: 1980).
