The article discusses the engineering behind constructing corners between two double-curtained walls made of reinforced concrete, as well as presenting an answer to a question about converting the measurement of deformed reinforcing steel bars to the inch-pound (in.-lb) marking system. Diagrams are presented of the placement of vertical bars at wall corners in buildings, and the article mentions the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI).
