Abstract. The length of reinforced concrete blocks varies widely, while in general the reinforcement produced in Indonesia is 12 m. Therefore, the use of reinforcement in a long stretch is done to be connected. The through connection is the most economical connection . Lap splice can be made by overlapping the reinforcement which is touching or separate . Splicing reinforcement can cause the strength of reinforced concrete beams to be reduced or even damaged so that rehabilitation measures are needed which can be in the form of retrofit (repair). Retrofitting with wiremesh and self compacting concrete (SCC) is considered to improve building structures. Reinforcement overlapping on reinforced concrete beams retrofit with wiremesh and self compacting concrete can be analyzed by numerical methods to determine their effect on bending behavior. Now, to analyze a structural behavior, it can be done using finite element method based program. The application of the finite element method is used in several programs, including ABAQUS, ADINA, Atena, ANSYS, etc. This study aims to analyze the overlapping of reinforcement in retrofit reinforced concrete beams against the flexural behavior, overlapping is made at one-third and one-third of the beam span using finite element method based analysis software.
