ASTM A82 is used to test welded wire that is used in the reinforcement of concrete. This standard coves wire that is made from cold-drawn or galvanized steel wire, in sizes not less than 2.03 mm [0.080 in.] nominal diameter. Mechanical properties of the steel wire that must be tested to meet this ASTM specification include; tension test, bending test, and reduction of area test. Tensile and yield strength will be determined from the test. ASTM A82 requires that the reduction of area in a test specimen be within a nominal range. Test Machines that give accurate results and measurements are necessary for meeting this standard for steel wire.
