oa Civil Engineer in South Africa - Alpha-numeric description of reinforcing bars

Volume 21, Issue 5
  • ISSN : 0009-7845



A new alpha-numeric system for the description of reinforcing bars is introduced. It can describe all bar shapes in a fixed format. Its symbolism is easy to understand and therefore easy to use. The opinion of interested parties on its adoption as a design tool is solicited.

'n Nuwe sisteem vir die alfa-numeriese beskrywing van wapeningstawe word geintroduseer. Dit kan alle staafvorms beskrywe in 'n vaste formaat. Sy simboliek is eenvoudig om te verstaan en daarom gemaklik om te gebruik. Die mening van belanghebbendes oor sy aanvaarding as ontwerphulpmiddel word gesoek.
