    ASTM A886 / A886M

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers seven-wire uncoated, indented, stress-relieved steel strand for use in pretensioned prestressed concrete construction. Grade 250I and Grade 270I have minimum ultimate strengths of 250 ksi [1725 MPa] and 270 ksi [1860 MPa], respectively, based on the nominal area of the strand.

    1.2 Supplement I describes low-relaxation strand and relaxation testing for that product. Low-relaxation strand shall be furnished when specifically ordered and furnished in place of stress-relieved strand if mutually agreed to by the purchaser and supplier.

    1.3 This specification is applicable for orders in either inch-pound units (as Specification A 886) or in SI units (as Specification A 886M).

    1.4 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standards. Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in parentheses. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
