The only reference to rebar weldability that I have is the "ACI DETAILING MANUAL - 1988". There it states that all standard bar specifications, A615, A616, and A617, specifically note that "The weldability of the steel is not part of this specification." Further, "it is recommended that bars conforming to ASTM A706, ... be used ... wherever important or extensive welding is required."
Contractors that I have dealt with, do not want to hear anything about rebar not being weldable ... they have been doing it for years ...
Am I outdated with my references?
Is A615 still not weldable?
Have the specifications for A615 been updated?
