AbstractPurpose. The paper proposes: 1) determination and formulation of factors that influence the choice of rational method for joining re-bars of vertical support members of reinforced concrete frame; 2) determination of factor parameters; 3) ranging of factors by the expert evaluation (Delphi) method. Methodology. In order to achieve research objectives, it is necessary to carry out analysis of existent rebar connection methods, determination of factors and parameter variation limits for each of the methods. Performing factor ranking by the expert evaluation method. Findings. The results of the questioning materials of 14 experts in the area of monolithic construction allowed setting the following: when choosing the rational re-bars connections, the most significant values are the factors that define the time parameters: possibility of carcassing, time of joining the re-bars, length of rebar cage, prior operation run time, operation time of main lifting equipment. Herewith the factors that define the rebar cage parameters have a direct relation to the work performance time, as they determine the amount of bar connections in the course of building erection over wide range. Economic factors – rebar connection cost and quality control cost – have the less value. It is obvious that in the conditions of considerable construction expenses it is advantageous for an investor to increase the rebar joining cost for the work growth rate. Structural and technological factors have the least value: origin of eccentric load transmission between re-bars, possibility of use of the thermally work-hardened re-bars of А500 and higher grades, work category for implementation of works, necessity to use the scaffold and appurtenances for re-enforcement of constructions. The reason is analogical: a contractor is ready to go to complication of technology with the purpose of reduction of the facility erection terms. As the calculated Pearson’s matching criterion χ2 = 47.24 is higher than the tabular one (22.36203), then the obtained concordance coefficient W=0.26 is not casual value, and that is why the obtained results make sense and can be used in further researches. Originality. The author obtained factors that influence the choice of the rational method for re-bars connection the most. Practical value. Ranging of factors will allow objective approaching to the problem of choice of re-bars connection method, optimizing the labour and material costs, and also reducing the construction time.
