Earthquake Resistance Rebar

According to ACI 318, deformed reinforcement resisting earthquake-induced flexural and axial forces in frame members must conform with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) publication ASTM A706.

ASTM A706/A706M continues to place upper limits on yield strength—a fundamental requirement for satisfactory use in reinforced concrete structures designed to resist earthquakes.

A706 also has excellent strain ductility capacity and chemical composition that makes it more suitable for welding
