The Development of Improved Techniques for the Installation of Reinforcing for Concrete Structures

Objective



It is proposed to design and develop improved techniques for connecting reinforcing bars using mechanical couplings to meet the increasing demands placed on concrete as a construction material. It is also proposed to develop a new automated threading mechanism by which concrete reinforcing is prepared for installation in structures. This low cost treatment process is expected to lead to more widespread application of high performance concrete using screw threaded coupler technology.
