Re: ASTM A 36 steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thanks for the replies.

One of my points was that although ACI 360 recommends that dowels be A36 steel,  A615 steel is typically used by the paving industry.

Its not a mission critical element,  probably any ASTM steel would do.  

ACI (and other association) recommendations are just that - recommendations.  Sometimes they are good, sometimes they aren't.  Unfortunately,  a lot of times these recommendations morph into specification requirements.
