Concrete reinforcing bars and bar systems have been evolving over the last century. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of late 19th and early 20th-century concrete reinforcement systems. We will focus on three aspects of concrete construction from this era: a) the forgotten, but not obsolete, variety of reinforcing steel bars, b) the bars systems used for beams, columns, and simple one-way spanning floor slabs, and c) the girderless concrete floor system (two-way flat slabs). In addition, we will learn about the use of epoxy-coated reinforcing steel (also known as green bar or epoxy bar) and glass-fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) in an effort to reduce or eliminate the corrosion associated with reinforcing steel. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.

Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform.
