Description

Incorrect bending can severely affect the performance of steel reinforcement in service. Results can be premature fracture, which will affect the capacity of the building elements to carry design loads. Of particular concern is the practice of bending reinforcing steel to too small a diameter. Bending then straightening (rebending) the reinforcing on site is of even greater concern.
