RE: Bending of Rebar

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
	Section 7.2, ACI 318-11, gives Minimum Bend Diameters. It would take some 
pretty clever field guys to provide the minimum bend of a bar projecting 
from cured concrete. R7.3.2 says don't do this "without authorization of 
the licensed design professional." Jim Getaz Winchester, Virginia
