Course Introduction

Welded Wire Reinforcement (WWR), with its higher yield strength and other material characteristics, has design requirements that are different from reinforcing steel. This course covers design basics for the design professional that wants to learn how to design structures using WWR. There can be significant savings on projects through the proper use of WWR. These savings come in material and labor costs. Material costs savings come from less material is needed, and labor savings is due to less manpower and faster installation. So this course includes the following topics:

  • Stress-strain relationship in WWR
  • Wire sizing and spacing
  • Sheet sizing, nomenclature, and bending capabilities
  • Code requirements
  • Splicing
  • Design Examples
