% Recycled and Equivalent to ASTM A rebar! Made exclusively by Byer Steel, A axle grade rebar is manufactured using train axles as its only raw. Third Party Testing Data shows A rebar performs consistent with ASTM, ASHTO, and ACI Standards making it a more cost effective alternative to A ASTM A is used for testing rail steel and all steel deformed bars used in concrete reinforcement. The specification looks at the standard sizes of deformed bar.

Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification. Register now while asgm still free! The standard sizes and dimensions of deformed bars and their number designation are presented. Would using grade 60 be ok? Force range of 5 kN to kN 1, lbf tolbf A9996 test space The most popular choice astk static tension and compression tests These dual column testers are available in both tabletop and floor standing models.

Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. If structural engineers were more involved in the A CRSI now has a another design engineer liaison to the committee. Software for Series Systems. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the asrm text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. The standard sizes and dimensions of deformed bars and their number designations are given in Table 1.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The basic test and challenges are similar regardless of the specific standard being followed. Contact Us View Accessories Catalog.

Onsite Training At Your Facility. These notes and footnotes, excluding those in tables and figures, shall not be considered as requirements of the specification. Tighter bends may damage the bar and could present a hazard to the persons doing the bending. Where concrete crushing inside the bend is not critical, tighter stirrup bends can be used. I would zstm concerned since quite a few thing have changed since then. The main parameter engineers specify is yield strength, followed by weldability, and then ductility for seismic uses.


Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. For all bar sizes a tension test, a bend test and a set of dimensional property tests including bar weight and spacing, height, and gap of deformations shall be made from each lot of 10 tons. Byer Steel manufactures rolls high quality reinforcing bars in multiple grades, and is the asgm domestic producer of ASTM A axle grade rebar – made exclusively from recycled train axles and equivalent in product performance to the more commonly used ASTM A bar.

The challenges of testing rebar to these standards are: This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Please confirm that you agree with our privacy and cookies policy to submit this form.

ASTM A Tension Rail Axle Steel Test Equipment

The Industrial Series delivers exceptional performance packaged in reliable, innovative system designs that offer superior accuracy and repeatability, improved safety, and an overall enhanced user experience.

It’s not so much the standard as what we know about the materials, and the evolution of the materials involved. All mill production goes directly into stock after quality control testing, and is available for immediate shipment.

Or use another weldable bar stock if deformations are not required. The lesson I am learning is that the replacement standard is not a direct substitute for the old standard. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This allows for large testing systems to test a wide range of rebar specimen sizes. We are confident that we have what you are looking for. Byer Steel’s rebar manufacturing operations is what is commonly referred to as a stocking mill. The rebar spec most likely changed when the kinds of retired rail steel and the processing methods changed.


The organization of the committee and subcommittees will be run by the industry mainly the manufacturers of certified light aircraft which may or may not represent astj interests of the consumer very well. They know what people buy, but what people buy is what is being currently manufactured.

Grip covers provide additional shielding to mechanical grip components.

If your design functions as an embedded hook into concrete, you should not bend tighter than standard rebar bends. The trend toward high-strength, lightweight materials for the aerospace, energy, construction, and transportation industries requires materials testing systems to be durable, yet maintain precise control while generating critical test data.

These requirements have been asrm to the relevant product standards: Particularly in rail steel, the carbon content is too high for proper welding. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. By continuing to use our site, you accept our cookie policy.
