ASTM WK46325

    Revision of B835 - 04(2009) Standard Specification for Compact Round Stranded Copper Conductors Using Single Input Wire Construction

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: B835 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: B01.04 | Committee B01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The current wording in section 9 refers to Table 2 for the stranding k-factor. Table 2 is actually the temperature correction factors for resistance. Revise to use 2 % as the incremental increase in mass and resistance due to stranding. The 2% incremental increase also aligns with similar standards such as B496 and B400.
