Standard Test Methods for Testing Multi-Wire Steel Prestressing Strand
|Publication Date:||1 July 2020|
|ICS Code (Steels for reinforcement of concrete):||77.140.15|
These test methods describe procedures for testing the mechanical properties of multi-wire steel prestressing strand.
These test methods are intended for use in evaluating specific strand properties prescribed in specifications for multiwire steel prestressing strand, but they do not quantify acceptance criteria specified in the applicable specification for the strand being tested.
The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.
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.
