Re: welded wire fabric for columns

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


                        I have used WWR for column ties, though only in very lightly loaded ones, nor were they CIP, only precast. I think as long as the mesh meets ACI 318 for ties, there are no issues. In seismic regions, this means the ends need to be anchored within the confined concrete, which means cutting a lot of wires.
