Bending/Straightening Concrete Reinforcing Steel: Review of WSDOT's Specifications and Proposed Modifications

Description: Summary overview of Resin Grouting Epoxy-Coated Concrete Reinforcing Bars, volume two of Bending/Straightening Concrete Reinforcing Steel: Review of WSDOT's Specifications and Proposed Modifications, which discusses and reviews WSDOT's procedures for field bending/straightening reinforcing bars in the field. This summary includes WSDOT's research approach, review's WSDOT's  specification guidelines for field/bending/straightening concrete reinforcing bars and proposes modifications to those guidelines based on current knowledge.
