RE: field bending reinforcing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Is there something about an embedded reinforcing bar that makes it more susceptible to bending 3 times? I would think the reason to disallow field bending would have more to do with insuring proper diameter of bends at critical bars in lieu of kinking a bar with a cheater pipe or the like. Your right, I should check the archives.

This thread has been covered previously. 
Tests done back "when Adam was a cowboy", identify that bending more than two times can result in a significant loss of bar strength.

What are the reasons for not allowing field bending of embedded reinforcing
per section 1907.3.2.?
