Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 March 2012
Status: active
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Concrete structures): 91.080.40
scope:

This test method covers the procedure for evaluating the alkali resistance of FRP bars used as reinforcing bars in concrete. Alkali resistance is measured by subjecting the FRP bars to an aqueous alkali environment, with or without sustained tensile stress, and then testing them to failure in tension according to Test Method D7205/D7205M. This standard presents three procedures conducted at a moderately elevated temperature of 60 ºC (140 ºF), each defining different loading conditions. The test method is also appropriate for use with linear segments of FRP reinforcements cut from two- or three-dimensional reinforcing grid.

The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units shall be regarded separately as the standard. The inch-pound units are shown in the parentheses. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore each system shall be used independently of each other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
