Title: Computer Graphic Tools Identify Reinforcement Placement Problems
Author(s): Scott R. Smith, Nader Panashahi, and Luke Snell
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 40-42
Keywords: Congestion; placing; intersection; design; constructability
Abstract:It is fairly common for reinforcement placing problems to occur during construction. Reinforcement schedules specified during the design stage sometimes create congestion at the intersections of members. Often these conflicts are not detected until workers begin building the reinforcement cages. This makes it difficult, but necessary, to develop a computer program that detects possible reinforcement placement problems.
