Selecting bar sizes a practical compromise l.jpg
Selecting Bar Sizes: A Practical Compromise

  • Make Bars as Large As Possible for Better Flow Paths for Concrete (Constructability)

  • Make Bars as Small As Possible to Minimize Crack Size (Durability)

  • Splices

    Use Only Lap or Mechanical Splices

    Locate Splices As Deep As Possible

Cage Design for Constructability

  • Clear Spacing Between All Bars  5 D of Largest

  • Coarse Aggregate or 5 inches, (whichever is

  • larger) to Allow Placement of Concrete

  • Bundle Bars if Necessary

  • Tie Transverse Steel Every Lap

Essentials of Cage Design for Constructability

  • No Out-Hooks if Casing Method is Possible

  • Make Cages Full Depth if Casing Method is Possible

  • Do Not Allow Welding Unless Weldable Steel is Specified












Practical tips on storing and handling rebar cages l.jpg
Practical Tips on Storing and Handling Rebar Cages

  • Storage

    Keep it clean

  • Cage Pick Up:

    No permanent distortion

    Use of temporary stiffeners

  • Use of Centralizers: External & Internal

  • NDT Access Tubes: Straight & Parallel
