Threaded Bar Reinforcing Systems
This lecture will be presented by Steven Bongiorno
There has been a recent increase in the use of threaded bars as reinforcement for concrete building structures. They are typically provided as part of a larger system comprised of complimentary hardware for connections, anchorage and erection. As concrete structures continue to become taller and more complex, the use of such reinforcing systems will become even more prevalent. As such, it is important that designers understand and appreciate the unique features of threaded bars in order to maximize the benefits of their use as reinforcing in concrete structures. It is also critically important that designers, inspectors and end users understand the mechanical behavior and limitations of threaded reinforcing bars to ensure that they are being specified and installed appropriately for a given application.
This lecture will cover the basic features of treaded bars systems, their typical applications and benefits for concrete building structures and the limitations of their use in certain applications and under certain conditions. This will be a hands-on presentation, with various threaded bar components utilized and available for examination and audience participation throughout.
