Standard Specification for Uncoated Stress-Relieved Steel Wire for Prestressed Concrete
|Publication Date:||1 March 2005|
|ICS Code (Steel wire, wire ropes and link chains):||77.140.65|
|ICS Code (Steels for reinforcement of concrete):||77.140.15|
This specification covers two types of uncoated stress-relieved round high-carbon steel wire commonly used in prestressed linear concrete construction, as follows:
Type BA wire is used for applications in which cold-end deformation is used for anchoring purposes (Button Anchorage), and
Type WA wire is used for application in which the ends are anchored by wedges, and no cold-end deformation of the wire is involved (Wedge Anchorage).
Supplement I describes low relaxation wire and relaxation testing for that product.
The values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded as standard. Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in parentheses. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way.
