Revision of A1034/A1034M-10a(2015) Standard Test Methods for Testing Mechanical Splices for Steel Reinforcing Bars


With the addition of grade 100 steel to both A615 and A706, it is possible that field testing of mechanical splices will result in test results that appear to be a failed result, but should properly be interpreted as invalid results. The purpose of this revision is to add mandatory language that will declare a test invalid under those specific conditions.
