Code) for measuring the yield strength of nonprestressed reinforcement without a well-defined yield point. The present method is the extension under load method at a strain of 0.35 percent, as first required by the 1971 edition of ACI 318, Building Code Requirements for Reinforced Concrete (ACI 318-71). It
Brief Historical Overview of Yield Strength Determination ACI 318-63:When reinforcement is used that has a yield strength, f y, in excess of 60,000 psi,at a proof stress equal to the specified yield strength, f y, the strain does not exceed 0.003. The exception can be associated with the progression to USD (ultimate strength
where:f yd is the design yield strength of the reinforcement; N Ed is the design axial compression force (3) The area of longitudinal reinforcement should not exceed A s,max. Note:The value of A s,max for use in a Country may be found in its National Annex. The recommended value is 0.04·A c outside lap locations unless it can be shown that the integrity of concrete is not affected, and that
Fatigue in High Strength Reinforcement Bars:An Overviewhigh yield strength steel reinforcement in the developed world. These types and grades of steel reinforcement have yield strength in excess of 550 MPa. Granted, using steel with this higher capacity could provide various benefits to the concrete construction industry by reducing member cross sections and reinforcement quantities, leading to

High-Strength Reinforcing Bars Introduction Grade 60 reinforcing steel, with a yield strength of 60,000 psi, is the most com-monly used Grade in North America. Recent advances have enabled reinforcing steels of higher strengths to be commer-cially produced. In ATC 115 (ATC 2014), high-strength re-inforcing bars (HSRB) were considered any

Reinforcement standards (historic) The specified yield stresses specified in the Standards for reinforcement have varied over the years. Some values are given below. Plain round mild steel bars BS 785:1938 & BS 785:Part 1, 1967 36,000 psi for bars up to 1 ½ inches . BS 4449:1969, 1978 & 1988 250 N/mm 2. Cold worked deformed bars BS 1144:1943
Standards for reinforcement - Concrete CentreThis was a full revision of the standard and defines three grades of reinforcement conforming to the now withdrawn BS EN 10080:B500A, B500B and B500C. The characteristic yield strength is set at 500 MPa and the tensile properties and ductility of the three grades are described in Table 1.
Steel Reinforcement Grades - B500A, B500B, B500C Heaton Steel used for reinforcing concrete has the application letter B, and the number 500, which represents a minimum yield strength of 500MPa. The grades for reinforcement steel then have a final letter A, B or C. The Differences Between B500A, B500B, and B500C
Steel reinforcement bars or rebars are used to improve the tensile strength of the concrete, since concrete is very weak in tension, but is strong in compression. Steel is only used as rebar because elongation of steel due to high temperatures (thermal expansion coefficient) nearly equals to that of concrete.
