From the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute:
This publication presents the practices in placing reinforcing bars in structures and pavement. It is written for apprentices, journeymen ironworkers, and inspectors. A great resource for preparing provisions in project specifications.
Eighteen heavily illustrated chapters cover topics including types of materials, handling of bars at the jobsite, general principles for bar placing, splicing, and tying, bar placement in footings, walls, columns, floors, roofs, pavement and transportation structures. It also includes a chapter on epoxy-coated and other coated reinforcement.
