Table of Contents
1. Describe the advances steel reinforcement is making to create new higher strength materials and describe possible advantages in design and cost of replacing normal Grade 60 steel with higher Grade steel in member design.
2. Identify the steel reinforcement grades currently permitted today for flexural, axial, shear, torsion, temperature and shrinkage reinforcement applications, and explain the effect of higher grades of steel on concrete beam and column designs for seismic and non-seismic design applications.
3. Describe the 0.2 percent offset method that is now part of the ACI 318-14 code and how this test method changes the measured yield strengths of 80 Grade and 100 Grade steel.
4. Describe how higher strength reinforcement products can improve concrete designs and concrete construction by reducing reinforcement bar congestion.
