Abstract

"The Wire Reinforcement Institute, Inc., is concerned, primarily, with gathering data and technical information to substantiate the following:

  1. That welded wire fabric, when used as a reinforcement in concrete, distributes the stresses throughout the concrete slab, as has been maintained by engineers during the past 40 years.
  2. That welded wire fabric provides adequate crack control within the working limits of the fabric.

In order to efficiently accomplish Objectives 1 and 2 above, we wish to establish:

  1. The safe working stress that we can safely recommend for welded wire fabric -- both in bond and tension.
  2. The proper spacing of longitudinal and transverse wires "--Object of Test, page 11.
