 How to reduce the invoice of iron to concrete in the

buildings and the works of the infrastructure?
 While using one of the 2 categories of the RB 500
 What is the RB 500?
 The RB 500 nominee in France FE 500 is reinforced bars
that has a minimal resistance of 500 newton/mm where as
the one of the RB 400 used up to here in Tunisia is of 410
 What are the 2 categories of the RB 500?
 There are two categories: the wieldable RB500 designated
by RB500W, and the RB500 non wieldable nominee merely
by RB500

 Why does it entail the reduction of the steel invoice?

 The RB 500 being more resistant than the RB 400, one gets
for the works the same result while using less steel.
 Of how much is this reduction?
 It goes from 8% to 35% and this next one the works to
 The reduction is of 18% for the buildings to use of offices
or dwellings. It reaches 35% for most posts, and of 19 to
33% for the tiles following their range.

 What economy can one get?

 First on the invoice of iron purchase to concrete since it is
marketed to the same price; then on the costs of the
handlings, of the transportation, of the confection of the

armatures and finally of the implementation of these

These costs can reach 40 to 50% of the reinforced bars
All of this without speaking of the reduction possibility to
the level of the quantities of the necessary concrete with
reinforced bars.
 Is the RB 500 used in the world?
 The known RB 500 under the appellation FE 500 is used
nearly systematically for all works and for all buildings
constructed throughout the world.
 Is the use of the RB 500 recognized in Tunisia?
 The RB 500 is foreseen by the Norm Tunisian NT 26.05 in
his version of 2004 ratified by decree of the minister of the
industry, the energy and the small and averages
undertaken of structural October 28, 2005 probate of the
so-called Norm and published in the JORT N 89 of
November 8, 2005, with date of effect May 8, 2006.
 The Norm Tunisian is her equivalent to a Norm
 Yes, she/it is equivalent to the Norm ISO 6935-2: 1991(F).
 Before this date, what was the norm applicable to the
reinforced bars?
 It was the norm NT 26.05 (version 1983) ratified by decree in
date of June 14, 1984 and whose application has been
made obligatory by decree in date of April 24, 1996.
 What is the difference for this norm between the version of
1983 and the one of 2004?
 The first only foresaw a category of reinforced bars, to
know the non wieldable RB 400. While the second foresees
4 categories of reinforces bars: two non wieldable
categories that are the RB 500 and the RB 400 and two
wieldable categories that are the RB 500 W and the RB

 What is the interest of the wieldable of reinforced bars?

 The wieldable is very useful in the confection of the
armatures while suppressing the sons of attachment and in
the making unalterable at the time of their displacement;
that that facilitate their handling and their transportation,
encouraging thus, the industrialization of the confection of
the armatures. Besides, the wieldable permits the solidness
with the armatures of the metallic elements able to be
integrated in the work. It finally permits to reduce the length
of the covers of the bars.
 The offices of control of the reinforced concrete endorse
him the reduction of steel in the armatures of the works?
 The office of APAVE control already confirmed by letter N
28981 of October 11, 2007 the reductions of steel in the
works while using the RB 500 in the place of the RB 400.
 How to ascertain the purchase of iron in R500W or concrete
 While requiring your supplier to deliver you only the iron to
concrete produces by a titular mill of a license delivered by
the INNORPI attesting the conformity to the NT 26.05 for
the RB 500 W or the RB 500.

 But again?
 While verifying that the ribs are those of the RB 500W or of
the RB 500 and no those of the RB 400. This verification
can make itself at the same time of the delivery and of the
confection of the armatures.
 How to distinguish them?
 The surface of the iron rod to concrete is divided in 2 airs,
every air have its own put ribs in relief. The shape and the
disposition of the ribs in every air vary from an iron
category to concrete to the other as the shows the
document joins titled identification of the circles to ribbed
