In reinforcement of steel bars, splicing technique is generally used to produce a single large reinforced steel bar by joining two similar length reinforced bars and wiring them.
Reinforced steel bars are the commonly used materials today in the field of construction whether it is for constructing homes, buildings or any structure. Initially, I was preferred for reinforcement of structures but when stronger iterations were introduced, the people made a wrong choice by favoring them. My name is Fe 415.
Use of Thermo Mechanically Treated (TMT) reinforced bars for construction is now a standard practice. With newer technologies developing, it results in efficient constructions strategies which in turn improves the lifespan and structural integrity of the building structure. However strong the building structure claims to be, in order to for its longevity the building structure has to face several hurdles, even the natural disasters.
Well, the last blog was all about the prevention of corrosion on reinforcement steel bars and two methods used for the prevention were described, but only one method was fully detailed. The other method is detailed right here. Let’s buckle up.
Corrosion is not something to be taken lightly. It poses a dangerous threat to the overall strength of the building structure. Corrosion starts out pretty much simple and advances through several stages that result in the eventual collapsing of the structure. Even though corrosion is threatening for RCC, there are preventive measures that can be taken to considerably delay the corrosion effects.
The last blog described the universal problem affecting the RCC which is corrosion / rusting and what are the causes of corrosion. In order for a Reinforced structure to have corrosion, the presence of these two components is needed which is moisture and air. Usually, corrosion starts out slowly and results in severe damages which in turn affects the structural integrity of the building.
Thermo Mechanically treated steel bars created the current standard of reinforcement. Their excellent tensile strength and ductility make them ideal and preferred for construction of building structures. Building structures are always susceptible to environmental changes. No building will ever be the same once the environmental changes kick in. Out of all the changes, the most serious and devastating is corrosion.
Construction of a house requires perfect planning and the sufficient strength to withstand loads of the structure and the certain natural disasters. In order to deliver such strength, the TMT steel reinforced bars are primarily used. Thermo Mechanically Treated (TMT) steel reinforced bars are known for their absolute strength and ductility. TMT is actually an innovated procedure performed on the hot rolled steel bars, which results in a strong outer martensite layer that deals the tensile strength and a soft ferrite-pearlite inner core which deals with the ductility factor. TMT reinforced steel bars are known for its Bendability.
Thermo Mechanically Treated (TMT) reinforced steel bars are the backbone of building structures. They offer the right amount of tensile strength and ductility needed for withstanding the different types of loads of the structure. Since it is an inevitable factor in the construction field, there are many steel companies in India which produce TMT reinforced bars.
Building a structure involves planning, resources and time. Every building structures are constructed with the purpose to last long, but when natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, hurricanes strike the buildings, they fall. So normally structures are vulnerable to natural disasters.
