RE: MISC - Mill Certification/Higher Yield Stress

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The Canadian LRFD code specifically prohibits using mill test 
results:

"The yield strength and tensile strength used as the basis for design 
shall be the specified minimum values as given in the naterial and 
product standards and specifications.  The levels reported on mill 
test certificates shall not be used as the basis for design."

CAN/CSA-S16.1-94  5.1.2
