Overview. ASTM F grade 36 anchor bolts are manufactured from A36, low carbon steel. This is your standard, run-of-the-mill bolt grade covering anchor. The specification for ASTM F covers straight and bent, headed and headless, carbon, F Grade 36, Low carbon, 36 ksi yield steel anchor bolts. The ASTM F specification covers anchor bolts designed to anchor structural supports to concrete foundations; F comes in three grades 36, 55, and.

I supplied an ASTM grade Stamping of Asttm bolts with manufacturer’s identification is a supplemental requirement S2 Color coding is required unless the grade is stamped in accordance with supplemental requirement S3.

Eduardo- The AISC guidelines say that snug tight is all that is required for anchor bolts, unless the project engineer says otherwise. Pearce- Yes, AC bolts are also weldable. F anchor bolts can take the form of either headed bolts, straight rods, or bent anchor bolts. When S1 is not specified, the Grade 55 material may or g1554 not be weldable.

F Grade 36 – F Anchor Bolts

I was able to explain that the was replaced years ago with the and that ipso facto, the was in fact a subsection of the non headed spec. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. I been in the business for 40 years and i can make history on this project. Both A grade C when it existed and F grade 36 have chemical and mechanical strength requirements that must be met in order to certify the bolts to these specifications.

The only way to be absolutely certain would be to send one piece to a test lab and have them run a mechanical and chemical analysis on it. It covers the raw material in this case steel round bar that is used to manufacture the bolts.


Deepak- Apologies, but we are not familiar enough with Indian standards to know what the equivalent would be. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Since this value is missing, there is no way to determine whether or not the bolts that were supplied and are already in the foundation have enough ductility as determined by the Reduction of Area test to meet the requirements of F grade The ASTM F specification was introduced in and covers anchor bolts designed to anchor structural supports to concrete foundations.

A307 Grade 36 vs F1554 Grade 36

They shall also be tested for their conformance with mechanical properties such as tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, reduction of area, and stress area. Are we missing any information in the mill certification for the F — see attached — is c1554 provided information in the mill certification can be passed as ASTM F? But this is one of the problems we have the structural engineer was pretty f154 on the fabricator make sure he followed all the specifications to the Tee.

Can you please provide the Torque Value required to tighten this anchor bolts? F Grades F Grade 36 Low carbon, 36 ksi yield steel anchor bolts F Grade 55 High strength, low alloy, 55 ksi yield steel anchor bolts F Grade Alloy, heat treated, high strength ksi yield steel anchor bolts.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and dimensional requirements, and associated test methods for straight and bent, headed and headless anchor bolts also known as anchor rods made of carbon, carbon boron, alloy, or high-strength low-alloy steel and having specified yield strengths.


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.

The bottom line is that these anchor bolts that were supplied are missing data that is required to certify them to F grade As you can see in the table below, F grade 36 requires additional testing reduction of area that A grade C did not require.

Leave this field empty. It provides for anchor bolts in three strength grades, two thread classes, and in the diameters specified in Section 4. Thank you for any help you can offer! ASTM A is a specification that covers mild steel bolts.

Applications for F anchor bolts include columns in structural steel framed buildings, traffic signal and street lighting poles, and overhead highway sign structures to name just a few.

Your email address will not be published. No other units ff1554 measurement are included in this standard. Most likely, the test was not performed since this is only a test of F and not a test required of A When Grade 36 is specified, a weldable Grade 55 may be furnished at the supplier’s option. Hi Greg, Sorry for being late to send you a clear copy of the Mill f554.

Just to refresh your memory: There is a very good chance that the bolts 3 meet this requirement if they were tested, but they never were.
