The process of resistance welding of reinforcing steels with application of fluxed intermediate inserts has been investigated. It was determined that inserts allow producing joints equal in strength to the parent metal at sufficiently lower degrees of plastic deformation and specific power of the equipment. Technology of welding the reinforcement of classes AI-AV of diameter from 8 up to 32 mm is offered.
