RE: [EXTERNAL]Anchor Rods

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
As a practical matter as well, an all-thread rod isn't a good idea for a 
lot of reasons.

You can certainly order and make from stock quantities but as you imply 
A307 is not longer a good idea for anchor rods.

As we've discussed here before, F1554 includes not only the specification 
for material, but for all other aspects of specifying and fabricating 
anchor rods. It's quite inclusive, and that was the intent.

Threaded rods produced to ASTM A307 and anchor rods produced to F1554 are 
not the same. See Portland Bolt for information on anchor rods. Most 
engineers would not use an althreaded rod for anchorage as all the 
development stress is concentrated in the threads..
