ASTM F1554 is a relatively new material specification that covers hooked, headed and threaded anchor rods in three strength grades: 36, 55 and 105. It is basically the same as the DOT specification AASHTO M-314.
36, 55 and 105. It is basically the same as the DOT specification AASHTO M-314.
F-1554 grade 36 (similar to A36 bar) is most commonly specified, although grades 55 and 105 are normally available when higher strength is required. ASTM F-1554 grade 36 can be specified to allow welded field correction should the anchor rods be placed incorrectly. ASTM F1554 grade 55 with weldability supplement S1 and the carbon equivalent formula in ASTM F1554 Section S220.127.116.11, can also be used for this situation.
ASTM F1554 grades 36 and 105 are anchor rod grades similar to the generic rod specifications ASTM A36 and A193 grade B7, respectively. ASTM F1554 grade 55, when specified with the weldability supplement, is similar to an ASTM A572 material that is intermediate between grades 50 & 60.
Several other ASTM Specifications are sometimes specified for anchor rods. ASTM A36, A193, A307, A354, A449, A572, A588 and A687, although sometimes specified, may not be appropriate, or may be difficult to find.
ASTM A325 and A490 are for steel-to-steel structural bolting only, not steel-to-concrete anchoring. They should not be specified for anchor bolts, because they have special heading and threading requirements and are generally available in lengths up to 8 inches only. ASTM A449 is the strength level equivalent of A325, and ASTM A354 or ETD 150 is the strength level equivalent of ASTM A490 in a rod specification with more general heading, threading and other requirements.
