ASTM A996 is used for testing rail steel and all steel deformed bars used in concrete reinforcement. The specification looks at the standard sizes of deformed bar and the strength requirements of that bar. To meet the ASTM A996 standard, this test requires the determination of the steel carbon and alloy content. Mechanical properties that must be determined include yield point or yield strength, and bending strength. Measurements of the bar are necessary in determining the weight, spacing, height, and gap of deformation of the bar.
