Re: MISC - Mill Certification/Higher Yield Stress

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Charlie,

	my experience has been that rebar & milled steel frequently come 
5-7 ksi above the required strength given to the mill, to ensure the minimum 
yield strength spec'd.  I haven't noticed anything in the LRFD codes regarding it, 
but I was given to understand this was standard practice.
