Splicing of Reinforced bars

Splicing-reinforcement-Fe 415

The current construction of building structures is dominated by reinforced steel. Reinforced steel bars are preferred for their unmatched tensile strength which the concrete is weak to provide and ductility factor, that helps to withstand the load of the structure. There are different grades and different diameters (mm) of the reinforced bars in the current market namely Fe 415, Fe 500, Fe 550 and Fe 600.

Thermal Resistance of TMT bars

Thermal Resistance of TMT bars Fe415 rightsteel

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.

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.

Nowadays TMT steels are commonly used in constructions. What is  TMT? Why is it used than other types of steel? Well, before TMT was introduced Mild Steel (MS) bars, Cold Twisted Deformed (CTD) bars were primarily used with concrete for constructing buildings. Those steel were graded Fe 250 but their low strength was a problem for buildings requiring more strength.
