Re: Baseplate Anchorage

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

I don't have ASTM F1554 at hand, but supplementary requirements to ASTM Specs 
are generally numbered.  I would specify the anchors as, "ASTM F1554-99, 
Grade 55, with Supplementary Requirement ##."  You can also personally modify 
any ASTM spec with your own requirements, if you feel up to it (and are sure 
that it will be provided).
