Title: Some Observations on the Physical Properties of Wire for Plain
and Deformed Welded Wire Fabric
Author(s): A.B. Dove
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 424-430
Keywords: concrete slabs; deformed reinforcement; ductility; one-way slabs;strains; welded wire fabric.
Abstract:A technical paper by Mirza and MacGregor on strength and ductility of concrete slabs reinforced with welded wire fabric was published in the September-October 1981 AC1 Journal. This article advocated a mathematical determination of welded fabric ductility. The present paper reviews the difference in expected ultimate strain values in wire and reinforcing bar and shows that while a suggested equation appears to be suitable for plain round wire, it may not be accurate for deformed wires.
