This course will provide an overview of the history and role of welded wire reinforcement in concrete construction. It will help architects and designers understand the benefits of WWR in creating high-performance buildings and will explore best practices in specifying WWR to realize cost and time savings in construction that ultimately benefit the owner and all project stakeholders.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the uses of welded wire reinforcement (WWR).
  • Examine the benefits of specifying welded wire reinforcement during project design.
  • Identify best practices for specifying WWR for design and performance.
  • Analyze the benefits of specifying welded wire reinforcement through architectural case studies.
