NOTE: TTS/ASTM A615M:2010, Standard specification for deformed and plain carbon-steel bars for concrete reinforcement and TTS/ASTM A706M:2010, Standard specification for low-alloy steel deformed and plain bars for concrete reinforcement, apply to steel bars used for concrete reinforcement. At the time of declaration of this standard, TTS/ASTM A615M:2010 and TTS/ASTM A706M:2010 were being reviewed and it is anticipated that they will be replaced by a new standard, TTCS 8, Steel for the reinforcement of concrete – Compulsory requirements.
