a) Steel is essentially an iron-carbon alloy with a carbon content intermediate between those of cast and wrought iron. A rough differentiation is made between low carbon steels and high carbon steels such as tool steels. Both are known as plain carbon steels, to distinguish them from steels containing alloying ingredients additional to carbon which give them special properties. Though steel have high tensile strength, detailing is necessary not only for the steel structures but also for the RCC members as it is the translation of all the mathematical expression’s result. For that matter, coin a comprehensive definition for detailing of reinforcement bar (steel).
b)Old structures are preserved and surrounding areas are developed in an attempt to maintain our heritage and as an attraction to tourists, such as Anglican Church, beach road Accra. The complete interior layout may even be altered with a wall being removed here and a floor strengthened there. Write to defend the view that it is engineering advisable or not to use different detailing of reinforcement for rehabilitated structures.
c) Detailing is very important not only for the proper execution of the structures but for the safety of the structures. Generally, produce a factor on the dos and don’ts considered when arranging the detail of reinforcement.
