Description / Abstract:

This code shall apply to the welding of:

(1) Reinforcing steel to reinforcing steel, and (2) Reinforcing steel to carbon or low-alloy structural steel.

When the code is stipulated in contract documents, conformance with all provisions shall be required, except for those provisions that the Engineer or contract documents specifically modifies or exempts.


This code shall be used in conjunction with the prescribed general building code specifications and is applicable to all welding of reinforcing steel, using the processes listed in 1.4, and performed as a part of reinforced concrete construction. When reinforcing steel is welded to structural steel, the provisions of the latest edition of ANSI/AWS D1.1, Structural Welding Code - Steel shall apply to the structural steel component.

The weldments specified in this code shall not be used where impact properties are a requirement of the general specification. Impact testing requirements of welded reinforcing bars are not included in this code.

All references to the need for approval shall be interpreted to mean approval by the Building Commissioner, defined as the Building Commissioner or the Engineer. Hereinafter the term Engineer will be used, and is to be construed to mean the Building Commissioner or the Engineer.


This code covers the requirements for welding reinforcing steel in most reinforced concrete applications. It contains a body of rules for the regulations of welding reinforcing steel and provides suitable acceptance criteria for such welds.
