Reinforcement Placement and Masonry Grouting

When:  Oct 23, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (CT)

Every structural masonry project includes the use of reinforcement and grout. Due to the high stresses everywhere, any weakness in the grouting or misplacement of the reinforcement could produce a failure.

The building code provides requirements for bar placement and allowable tolerances. While the requirements are identical to all reinforced masonry, the importance of constructing to a very high standard warrants a review of techniques.

This program will include:

  • Planning and preparing for the work
  • Code requirements for submittals and inspections
  • Reinforcement placement and tolerance
  • Types of grout
  • Grouting techniques
