Technical Note ETN-M-12-19 - 10 pp.; 2019

This document focuses on industry practices for typical measuring points and typical fabrication tolerances. The information relates to the standardization and commonality of bending steel reinforcing bars and the new and updated bend shapes that appear in the 29th edition of CRSI's Manual of Standard Practice.

The Task Group on Bending, operating under both the Fabrication and Manual of Standard Practice Committees, has developed both updated and new documentation regarding reinforcing bar bending and bend shapes since the publication of the 29th edition of the Manual of Standard Practice (2018). The purpose of this Technical Note is to review the industry practices for typical measuring points and typical fabrication tolerances.
