Overview ASTM A706/A706M is a standard developed by ASTM International that provides guidelines and requirements for the production of low-alloy steel deformed and plain bars used for the reinforcement of concrete. This standard specifies the chemical composition, mechanical properties, and dimensions of the steel bars to ensure their suitability for use in reinforced concrete structures, particularly where weldability and ductility are important.

The 2016 Ohio Low-Alloy Steel Deformed and Plain Bars for Concrete Reinforcement Code is based on ASTM A706/A706M-16 with Ohio-specific amendments. This code sets the minimum standards for the manufacturing, quality control, and use of low-alloy steel deformed and plain bars for concrete reinforcement 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 reinforcement bars in concrete structures.
