"The Wire Reinforcement Institute, Inc., is concerned, primarily, with gathering data and technical information to substantiate the following:
- 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.
- 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:
- The safe working stress that we can safely recommend for welded wire fabric -- both in bond and tension.
- The proper spacing of longitudinal and transverse wires "--Object of Test, page 11.
