ASTM A-496 or A496 tension strength test and bending strength test on steel wire. Steel wire in this test has been produced through cold-worked drawing, rolling or both, and is used in reinforcing concrete structures. The purpose of the test is to determine the material properties of the steel wire. The tensile test is done to determine the tensile strength and yield strength of the steel wire. Bending tests are done to check that cracks do not develop when the steel wire is bent at right angles.
