Use B785 fabric

This comprises 10 mm wires @ 100 mm crs. horizontally and 8 mm wires @ 200 mm crs. vertically.

EC2 does not directly cover the use of plain wire fabric.

Surface reinforcement may also be used as longitudinal bending reinforcement in the horizontal direction and as shear reinforcement in the vertical direction in some cases.

If surface reinforcement is being used to resist shear, EC2 Clause should be noted. It states that a minimum of 50% of shear reinforcement should be in the form of links.

The reinforcement detail is shown in Figure 8.9.
