This specification covers steel-welded wire reinforcements, deformed for concrete reinforcement. The welded wire reinforcement shall be furnished either in flat sheets, or in rolls as specified by the purchaser. The wires shall be assembled, connected to every intersections, and shall be fabricated and finished wherein the wires shall conform to the required specifications. Tensile, bend and weld shear strength tests shall be performed to assure the specimens meet the mechanical property requirements.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers welded wire reinforcement made from cold-worked drawn or rolled deformed wire, or a combination of deformed and non-deformed wires, to be used for the reinforcement of concrete. Note 1
Welded wire for concrete reinforcement has been described by various terms: welded wire fabric, WWF, fabric, and mesh. The wire reinforcement industry prefers the term "welded wire reinforcement" (WWF) as being more representative of the range of products being manufactured. Therefore, the term "welded wire fabric" has been replaced with the term "welded wire reinforcement" in this specifcation and in other related specifications.
1.2 The values stated in SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
