Abstract:
There are two different methods of producing 500 MPa steel reinforcing bars in Australia. Bars can be strengthened via the addition of Vandium to form Micro-Alloy bar (MA). The other method is via rapid cooling of the steel during hot rolling and then allowing the core of the steel bar to re-heat the outer bar surface. Bars produced by this quenching and self-tempering process are referred to as QST bars. This paper compares the bending performance of bars produced by these two methods.
