Re: Rebar Specs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

ACI 318-99 does allow the use of ASTM A616 (including Supplementary
Requirement S1) and ASTM A617.  I would, however, make sure that you are
familiar with both ASTM specs material properties to make sure that it
fits your particular situation.

> Is there any problem with allowing the contractor to use rebar that conforms to ASTM A616 or A617 instead of A615?  A616 and A617 are rail steel and axle steel.  A615 is new billet steel.  The project requires reinforcing for foundations, slab on grade and reinforcement for Concrete Masonry walls.
