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.
