Standard Specification for Deformed and Plain Billet-STeel Bars for Concrete Reinforcement
|Publication Date:||1 October 2013|
|ICS Code (Steels for reinforcement of concrete):||77.140.15|
This specification covers deformed and plain billet-steel
A supplementary requirement (SI) of an optional nature is provided. It shall apply only when specified by the purchaser.
Bars are of two minimum yield levels: namely, 40 000 psi and 60 000 psi, designated as Grade 40 and Grade 60, respectively.
Hot-rolled plain rounds, in sizes up to and including 2 in. in diameter in coils or cut lengths, when specified for dowels, spirals and structural ties or supports shall be furnished under this specification in Grade 40 and Grade 60 (Note I). For bending properties, test provisions of the nearest nominal diameter deformed bar size shall apply. Those requirements providing for deformations and marking shall not be applicable.
The weldability of the steel is not part of this specification.
NOTE 1-The weight for plain rounds smaller than 3/8 in. in diameter shall be computed on the basis of the size in Specification A 510.
NOTE 2-A complete metric companion to Specification A 615 has been developed-A 615M; therefore, no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
