% 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.

By means of our testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the solution that is right for you. Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their homework.

This allows for large testing systems to test a wide range of rebar specimen sizes. Next Checking to see if you are a returning visitor….

Featuring an ultra-large single test space and adjustable crosshead options, these frames deliver exceptional flexibility for a wide range of testing applications and are available in capacities ranging from kNlbf to 3, x996lbf. These advanced grips maintain a constant clamping force on the specimen that acts perpendicular to the direction of testing and is independent of tensile loading.

The standard sizes and dimensions of deformed bars and their number designations are given in Table 1. Close this window and log in. Type A is of two minimum yield levels, namely 40 psi [ MPa] and 60 psi [ MPa] designated as Grade 40 [] and Grade 60 [], respectively. Where concrete crushing inside the bend is not critical, tighter stirrup bends can be used. Download Now White Paper: Concrete, Asphalt and Rock.

The trend satm 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. Would using grade 60 be ok? Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.


It’s not so much the standard as what we know about the materials, and the evolution of the 9a96 involved. Contact Us View Accessories Catalog. Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden.

ASTM specs change in response to the supply, not typically because of changes in demand. I have attached the pdf file.

Software for Series Systems. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. Mechanical properties that must be determined include yield point or yield strength, and bending strength. 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. It also allows for automatic reporting of total elongation when using an AutoX extensometer.

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 the interests of the consumer very well. Also, true rail steel bar are not typically fabricated only cut to straight lengthssince these bars are not as ductile as other types of reinforcing steel.


Moreover, rebar orders may be combined with all other Byer Steel structural products to achieve higher weight and more competitive freight amortization on each order. Our Team Our Sales Team. The standard sizes and dimensions of deformed bars and their number designation are presented.

The Rebar mill

Type A is of two minimum yield levels, namely 40 psi [ MPa] and 60 psi [ MPa] designated as Grade 40 [] and Grade 60 [], respectively. The Rebar mill Byer Steel manufactures rolls high quality reinforcing bars in multiple grades, and is the only domestic producer of ASTM Asfm axle grade rebar – made exclusively from recycled train axles and equivalent in product performance to the more commonly used ASTM A bar. Hydraulic actuators and grips act as natural shock absorbers during specimen failure while other vital system components incorporate isolation mounts to guard against shock loads.

The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action.

The AutoX is a high-resolution, long-travel automatic contacting extensometer. The dynamic of this is that it is the producers who sit on ASTM committees, because those are the people committed to the work. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Producers try to respond to market pressure higher strength, for examplebut there are complications, like ACIwhich limits the use of high strength bars for functional and safety reasons.

All sizes and grades of all types may not be readily available; manufacturers should be consulted to verify availability.
