After laying the first row of blocks, the men drilled 5/8-inch holes into the slab and inserted 4-foot-long reinforcing rod
stakes, with four stakes in the 14-foot walls and two in the 6-foot walls.
The structures combine the strength of steel reinforcing rod
with a special polymer concrete formulated with Vipel corrosion-resistant resin from AOC.
When replaced in the wall, the logs were secured at each end on a single "spike," actually a short (10 to 18-inch) length of 3/8-inch steel reinforcing rod
. Care was taken to be sure that no spikes were placed where the door opening would later be cut.
Before preparing the concrete, cut three 45-inch-long pieces of 1/2-inch reinforcing rod
(rebar) and another three that are 36 inches long.
Gerdau will acquire 30% of Multisteel Business Holdings Corp., which controls Industrias Nacionales, known as Inca, which makes and sells 400,000 tons a year of reinforcing rod
, wire, tubes, beams and other steel products, said CEO Andre Gerdau Johannpeter.
Set a steel reinforcing rod
into the ground, then select six or seven stones and drill a hole in the centre of each so they can be threaded on the rod to make a tower.
In other words, the system works by grouting a deformed stainless steel reinforcing rod
into holes drilled into the arch.
Excellent results also were obtained in roundwood members with a reinforcing rod
, or hoop, looped around the end of the member and tightened (Fig.
For slabs that get automobile traffic, reinforcing rod
(often called rebar) is a better way to buttress the concrete than fiber or welded wire.
SMOUV features a clear plastic sleeve for inspection and a ceramic reinforcing rod
. Raychem's product has a low-temperature, hot-melt adhesive for mechanical strength, alignment, and sealing.
The steel maker planned to produce plain reinforcing rod
with an annual capacity of 48,000 tons and spiral reinforced rod 48,000 tons.
