ASTM A416 Tensile Breaking Elongation Stress Relaxation Steel Wire Test Machines

ASTM A416 tensile test for breaking elongation stress relaxation on steel wire deals with the standard types and grade requirements of seven-wire, uncoated steel strands for use in the construction of pre-tensioned and post-tensioned pre-stressed concrete. The two types of strand specified by the ASTM A416 specification are low-relaxation and stress-relieved (normal relaxation). The base metal shall be made of carbon steel and shall undergo stranding and continuous thermal and mechanical treatment. Mechanical testing methods shall be performed alongside ASTM A416 to determine the breaking strength, yield strength, elongation, and stress relaxation properties wherein the strand shall conform to the required mechanical attributes of the product. Final product requirements of ASTM A416 shall be furnished on reels or in reelless packs for packaging and marked with two strong tags for identification. The requirements specified in ASTM A416 shall also be applicable for pre-stressed ground anchor construction.

Mechanical testing methods shall be performed to determine the breaking strength, yield strength, elongation, and stress relaxation properties wherein the strand shall conform to the required mechanical attributes of the product.
