In addition to what Ben stated, you can fillet weld either the A496 or A706, but you will not be able to use the stud gun unless you use the A 496. |
The manufactured DBA's have the dimple and come with the appropriate ferrules. You would have to do a bit of custom machining to use a regular A 706 bar in a stud gun.

A 496 material is the correct designation for the material used by the Nelson arc welding machines.
A 706 material would be acceptable for use, in lieu of A 496, if the contractor intended on providing all-around fillet welds to the structural steel (be prepared to give them an appropriate weld thickness schedule, and don't forget the visual inspection). Fillet welds work up to #6 or somewhere in there before your cross sectional area to circumference ratio makes it impossible to connect with fillet welds.
If you're on a small job, contractors sometimes seem to opt for welding the bars themselves rather than bringing in the specialty equipment for the DBAs.
A 518? From what I see this is an iron casting designation.

Anyone know what the current ASTM designation for DBA (deformed bar anchor) is?
I have some shops coming in specifing A496, another set specifing A706 weldable rebar, and another set with A518.
Just wonding what I should be specifing for just a general application?
