Standard Specification for Steel Strand, Indented, Seven-Wire Stress-Relieved for Prestressed Concrete
|Publication Date:||10 September 1999|
|ICS Code (Steels for reinforcement of concrete):||77.140.15|
1.1 This specification covers seven-wire uncoated, indented, stress-relieved steel strand for use in pretensioned prestressed concrete construction. Grade 250I and Grade 270I have minimum ultimate strengths of 250 ksi [1725 MPa] and 270 ksi [1860 MPa], respectively, based on the nominal area of the strand.
1.2 Supplement I describes low-relaxation strand and relaxation testing for that product. Low-relaxation strand shall be furnished when specifically ordered, and it may be furnished in place of regular strand if mutually agreed to by the purchaser and supplier.
1.3 This specification is applicable for orders in either inch-pound units (as Specification A886) or in SI units (as Specification A886M).
1.4 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standards. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
