Abstract

"...Welded Wire Reinforcement Fabric has been applied only to certain "light types" of reinforced concrete construction. It has not as yet been applied as main tension reinforcement for most concrete structures, mainly due to the fact that a thorough investigation of the potentialities and possibilities of welded wire fabric has not as yet been conducted. It is expected that the data collected in this investigation coupled with data collected in similar investigations performed at the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy will furnish the basis for a structural and economic comparison between welded wire fabric and ordinary reinforcing bars. The object of this investigation is to determine: (1) the mechanical anchorage and adhesive bond value of the welds in welded wire reinforcement fabric for various sizes of wire and for various spacings of the same wire; (2) the limiting size transverse and longitudinal wires of the welded wire fabric; (3) the effect of two-week and four-week rust on the bond stress of welded wire fabric. An attempt to draw a comparison of load and slip values between welded wire fabric and ordinary reinforcing bars is also part of the object of this investigation"--Purpose and Object of Investigations, page 9.
