    This specification covers uncoated, stress-relieved steel bars for prestressed concrete railroad ties. Analysis of the steel shall conform to the chemical requirements specified by the specification. Mechanical requirements including test method, tensile strength, yield strength, elongation and wrapping test are provided. One test specimen each for the tensile test and the wrapping test shall be taken for every 10 coils or fraction thereof in a lot.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers uncoated stress-relieved steel bars for use in prestressed concrete railroad ties.

    1.2 A supplementary requirement (S1) is provided for use where low-relaxation bars and relaxation testing for that product is required by the purchaser. The supplementary requirement applies only when specified in the purchase order or contract.

    1.3 This specification is applicable for orders in either inch-pounds units (as Specification A911) or in SI units (as Specification A911M).

    1.4 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standards. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. 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.
