RE: CONCRETE: "-ing" or "-ment"?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We either say "reinforcing steel" or "reinforcement", since
"reinforcing" is an adjective.

	Another trivial question: 

	I'd like some opinions: 

	In writing specs or referring to steel rebar or WWR on drawings,
what is the correct term, "reinforcing" or "reinforcement"? Or does it
matter?
