Recent advances, including substantial new research, have enabled reinforcing steels of higher strengths to be a viable option in a variety of applications in reinforced concrete structures. This webinar will present information related to the use of Grade 80 and Grade 100 steel reinforcement in the 2019 edition of ACI 318 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete. Numerous revisions have been made in ACI 318-19 to incorporate the use of high-strength reinforcement, and this webinar will cover new and updated requirements for the following:

  • Types of nonprestressed reinforcing bars
  • Development and splice lengths
  • Structural members, including two-way slabs, beams, columns, walls, diaphragms, and foundations
  • Limits on concrete compressive strength
  • Strength reduction factors

Benefits related to the use of Grade 80 and Grade 100 reinforcing bars are also included.

Industry professionals should find the information in this webinar useful when designing, detailing, and specifying Grade 80 and Grade 100 reinforcing bars in building projects.
