Four Key Points of Reinforcement Engineering Acceptance
The acceptance of reinforcement engineering can be mainly divided into 7 steps. However, what are the main points at each stage? This paper sums up 4 points for readers, that is, right position, enough thickness, firm connection and good concealment.
REAK-01: Right position.
REAK-02: Enough thickness.
- Right position
According to the construction drawing, check the longitudinal forced steel bars, including their varieties, diameters, quantities, positions, spacing, shapes and sizes.
- Enough thickness
Check whether the thickness of concrete protective layer, constructional reinforcement and embedded parts meets the requirements of the drawings.
- Firm connection
Check the reinforcement joint, for example strapping lap:
- Check the lap length, joint position and quantity (stagger length, percentage of joints), welded joints or mechanical connections.
- Check whether its appearance, quality and the mechanical properties test of sample can meet the requirements, the position of the joint (staggered), and the quantity (the percentage of the joints).
- Good concealment
Check whether the concealed acceptance engineering records are completed.
