¿UN AUMENTO EN LA RESISTENCIA DEL ACERO QUE COMPONE LA ARMADURA MEJORA EL COMPORTAMIENTO MECÁNICO DE MI MURO?
Para control de fisuración, la resistencia del acero de la armadura no influye en la cuantía de armadura necesaria, sólo influye el área de la sección transversal.

DOES AN INCREASE IN THE STRENGTH OF THE STEEL THAT IS USED IN THE REINFORCEMENT IMPROVE THE MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF THE WALL?
For control of cracking, the strength of the steel in the reinforcement has no influence on the amount of reinforcement needed, only the area of the cross section.

EST-CE QU’UNE AUGMENTATION DANS LA RÉSISTANCE DE L’ACIER DE L’ARMATURE AMÉLIORE LE COMPORTEMENT MÉCANIQUE DU MUR?
Quand on utilise l’armature pour maçonnerie pour contrôle de fissuration, la résistance de l’acier de l’armature n’a pas d’influence sur la quantité d’armature nécessaire, il faut uniquement tenir compte de l’aire de section transversale.

AREN’T DIFFERENT REINFORCEMENTS REALLY EQUIVALENT?
As a general example to meet the minimum amounts required in the Eurocode to achieve a masonry assembled for the purpose of reducing cracking, it is sufficient to place masonry reinforcement of 3mm Ø ev ery 60cm.

¿QUÉ ARMADURAS SON REALMENTE EQUIVALENTES?
Sirva como ejemplo que para cumplir las cuantías mínimas que exige el Eurocódigo para conseguir una fábrica armada a efectos de contratar la fisuración sería suficiente con colocar una armadura de 3 mm de Ø cada 60 cm.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE CORRECT WIDTH OF THE REINFORCEMENT?

The coating with mortar of the masonry reinforcement is a fundamental requirement to ensure the protection of the steel from corrosion. Therefore, when it comes to getting this benefit, the conditions of coating have different importance according to the finishing of the masonry reinforcement. However, the coating is also an essential requirement for the proper transmission of forces of adhesion in the overlap areas and this is common for all the masonry reinforcements with structural use, independently of the type of finish. In order to achieve this provision, you must respect the minimum thickness of coating, both upper and lower, as well as lateral. Side coating in the areas of overlap is essential so that there is the transmission of efforts between the piece of reinforcement and the adjoining one, this circumstance must be taken into account when choosing the width of the reinforcement so that it is appropriate to the thickness of the wall. If the reinforcement does not have a specific design for the overlap, you must limit your width to allow the correct covering along the reinforcement longitudinally.

¿CÓMO ELEGIR EL ANCHO CORRECTO DE ARMADURA?
El recubrimiento con mortero de las armaduras es un requisito fundamental para garantizar la protección del acero frente a la corrosión. Por consiguiente, cuando se trata de conseguir esta prestación, las condiciones de recubrimiento tienen distinta importancia según sea el acabado de la armadura de tendel. Sin embargo, el recubrimiento también es un requisito esencial para la correcta trasmisión de esfuerzos por adherencia en las zonas de solape, y esto es común para todas las armaduras con uso estructural, independientemente del tipo de acabado. Para conseguir esta prestación, se deben respetar los espesores mínimos de recubrimiento, tanto superior e inferior, como lateral. El recubrimiento lateral en las zonas de solape es imprescindible para que se produzca la trasmisión de esfuerzos entre una pieza de armadura y la contigua, y esta circunstancia se debe tener en cuenta a la hora de elegir el ancho de la armadura adecuado al espesor del muro. Si la armadura no tiene un diseño específico para el solape, se debe restringir su ancho para permitir el recubrimiento lateral de todos los alambres longitudinales.

IF YOU WANT TO BUILD WALLS TO PREVENT CRACKING, HOW MUCH REINFORCEMENT DO YOU NEED?
The Eurocode explicitly defines the minimum amount of reinforcement needed to give ductility to the masonry and prevent cracking.

¿POR QUÉ ES IMPRESCINDIBLE EL MARCADO CE?
WHY IS IT IMPERATIVE TO HAVE THE CE MARKING?
POURQUOI EST-IL INDISPENSABLE LE MARQUAGE CE?

Porque es obligatorio para los productos que se incorporan de forma permanente en un edificio y porque, junto con la aplicación del Eurocódigo, suponen la única garantía de calidad. Para más información, visita nuestro blog o nuestro facebook.

It is compulsory for the products that are incorporated in the construction of a building and with the implementation of the Eurocode there are the only quality assurance. For more information, visit our blog or facebook.

Parce qu’il est obligatoire pour les produits de construction qui sont installés de façon permanente dans un bâtiment et parce que le marquage CE avec l’application de l’Eurocode, représente la seule garantie de qualité. Pour plus d’information, visitez notre blog ou facebook.

DOES CORRUGATED WIRE IMPROVE THE ADHESION?

The reinforcement does not improve at all by the fact the wire is corrugated. The conditions for grip relating to transferring forces evenly through-out small-diameter bars, such as the type of masonry reinforcement depend more on the measure of mortar and not the masonry reinforcement.
Grip provided by corrugated bars is only needed when the forces you may have are very large, this only occurs within very thick bars. In the case of the reinforcement a number is worth a thousand words, two bars of 4mm in diameter can transfer securely 10kN, following the required regulations.
This value has been tested on smooth bars of reinforcement. Furthermore the calculation shows the real value of the force that is transferred across
the reinforcement (that is met by the minimum quantity requirements) in worst case scenarios, is approximately half.
Consequently the corrugated reinforcement makes no extra benefits of reinforcement that weren’t in the traditional reinforcement. It is important that
the technique of reinforced concrete, capable of transferring large forces, use normal plain bars when there is a small diameter. What really improves the transmission of forces is the existence of a suitable cover of reinforcement in the overlap areas.

IS THE ADHESION OF THE MASONRY REINFORCEMENT IMPORTANT?
 
The adhesion of the reinforcement, if you are using the truss-type, does not intervene with the transmission of
forces between the first and last node of the truss. The transmission of forces in these sections is performed
entirely through the diagonal wires, even without mortar, by virtue of their geometrical configuration, indeformable in their plane.
 
Where it is really essential for the adherence of transmission of forces between the ends of pieces of reinforcement where the truss ends. This is why the overlap needs, a length proportionate to the forces that are transmitted and adequate cover in the overlap area.
To transfer the maximum force that it can withstand equally in the reinforcement, a sufficient overlap length of 250mm is needed (this value must be verified by tests).
To achieve the adequate transfer of adhesion and forces in the overlap areas, the wires must be spaced  when overlapping to a distance equal to their diameter.
