Standard Specification for Steel Welded Wire Reinforcement, Plain, for Concrete
|Publication Date:||10 December 2001|
|ICS Code (Steels for reinforcement of concrete):||77.140.15|
1.1 This specification covers welded wire reinforcement to be used for the reinforcement of concrete.
Note 1-Welded wire for concrete reinforcement has been described by various terms: welded wire fabric, WWF, fabric, and mesh. The wire reinforcement industry prefers the term "welded wire reinforcement" (WWR) as being more representative of the range of products being manufactured. Therefore, the term "welded wire fabric" has been replaced with the term "welded wire reinforcement" in this specification and in related specifications.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded as standard. Within the text the inch-pound units are shown in parenthesis. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values may result in nonconformance with the specification.
