The development of reinforcing bars from the original plain round or square forms to the present improved deformed patterns is traced through the early work of Withey and Abrams down to the 1949 report of Clark's tests. Noting that A.S.T.M. has adopted a standard for deformed bars, the author emphasizes the need for revision of design specifications to take into account the characteristics of the improved bars.
