Recommendations for Stay Cable Design, Testing and Installation
|Publication Date:||1 November 2018|
This Standard specifies:
• The geometrical, mechanical, and technological properties and the characteristics of the metallic coating for hot-dip zinc or zinc-aluminum coated smooth wires and seven-wire strands used for prestressing; and
• The conditions of inspection for all these properties and characteristics.
• The hot-dip zinc or zinc-aluminum coated smooth prestressing wires of 5 to 7 mm in nominal diameter, nominal tensile strength of 1670, 1770, and 1860 MPa (refer to Table 3) and Categories A and B, and
• The hot-dip zinc or zinc aluminum seven-coated wire prestressing strands with a nominal diameter between 12.5 and 12.7 mm and nominal tensile strength 1770 or 1860 MPa and Categories A and B,
used in reinforced and prestressed concrete structures.
This standard does not apply to hot-dip metal coated reinforcing steels (refer to A 35-025).
