Re: What is #3 Rebar equivalent for 6x6/W2.9xW2.9 WWF

And for a totally different thought:
 
The next ACI 360 will say something to the effect that certain areas of steel are recommended for given joint spacings, irrespective of  the grade (strength) of the steel.
 
The reason given in the committee discussion was that the stress in the steel is so far below the yield strength,  the yield strength is really not important.
 
At least I think that was the resolution and the reason. The discussion was, um, interesting but a bit loud and hard to follow.
