RE: common rebar grade

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What is 36ksi Grade 40 rebar? Try ASTM A615 Grade 40 or Grade 60.
The grade indicates the yield strength. Grade 40 is 40 ksi.
Check with your local steel suppliers for availability.

Subject: common rebar grade

Is 36ksi Grade 40 deformed concrete reinforcement still commonly available? I seem to remember that 60ksi rebar is becoming more and more common. I'm just wondering if I specify 36ksi rebar will the contractor probably end up with Grade 60 anyway.

Thanks in advance.
