Agha ASTM 706 Steel


• ASTM A706/A706M continues to place upper limits on yield strength. A fundamental requirement for satisfactory use in reinforced concrete structures designed to resist earthquakes.

• Deformed reinforcement resisting earthquake-induced flexural and axial forces in frame members must conform with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) publication ASTM A706.

• A706 also has excellent strain ductility capacity and chemical composition that makes it is more suitable for welding.
