Difficulties and troubles encountered through the use of reinforcement steels not in strict accordance with present-day specifications are discussed. Data are presented to show the possiblity of alleviating the situation for engineers, producers, and contractors. Simplfication of materials requirements, liberalization of code requirements to permit hot bending of bars and perminant identification of grade of steel would, in large measure, permit designers to apply reinforcement to structures in a more effective manner.
