REBAR:  Jobsite Issues & Inspection

By:  Jose E. Mendoza, P.E., M.ASCE

CRSI routinely receives inquiries concerning various aspects of reinforcing bars, and reinforced concrete design and construction. Most of these questions come from design professionals (engineers and architects) and field personnel (inspectors, code enforcement personnel, and contractors). The following are topic areas where CRSI receive a majority of their inquiries:

• Field bending of reinforcing bars

• Field cutting of reinforcing bars

• Welding of reinforcing bars

• Rust on reinforcing bars

• Cover over reinforcing bars

• Epoxy-coated reinforcing bars

• Properties of old reinforcing bars

• Bar support use & types

• Tying of reinforcing bars

• Availability and application of ASTM A706reinforcing bars
