Overview ASTM A722/A722M is a standard developed by ASTM International that provides guidelines and requirements for the production of high-strength steel bars used for prestressing concrete. This standard specifies the chemical composition, mechanical properties, and dimensions of the steel bars to ensure their suitability for use in prestressed concrete structures.

The 2018 Ohio High-Strength Steel Bars for Prestressed Concrete Code is based on ASTM A722/A722M-15 with Ohio-specific amendments. This code sets the minimum standards for the manufacturing, quality control, and use of high-strength steel bars for prestressed concrete within the state of Ohio. The Ohio-specific amendments include additional provisions tailored to the unique structural and environmental conditions in Ohio, ensuring the safety, reliability, and performance of the steel bars in prestressed concrete applications.
