The higher strength results in an increased design factor of the guying system. For users who opt to asym SS without downsizing the diameter of the strand, other benefits apply.

ASTM A603 – 98(2014)

In doing so, we are able to test and certify the following:. For any given diameter, wire strand is the least flexible of steel cables. This specification covers zinc-coated steel structural wire rope, prestretched or nonprestretched for use where a high-strength, relatively flexible prefabricated zinc-coated multiple-wire tension member is desired as a component part of a structure.

Awtm Structural Strand is an arrangement of wires laid helically around a center wire to produce a symmetrical cross section.

In addition, WW can obtain material certification from end termination vendors. The prestretched rope shall meet the required minimum modulus of elasticity. 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. Adtm weight of the zinc coating shall be determined by a stripping test made on the individual wires prior to fabrication of strand.


WW is also ISO certified. Reduced Structural Strand Diameter—Now that designers can utilize a smaller diameter strand for the guying system, SS offers a lower cost per foot, allowing the user to cut valuable dollars from the cost of a project.

The sstm rope is furnished s603 Class A weight zinc-coated wires throughout. Please contact your WW regional sales manager or asfm service representative for further information.

Using SS also offers these advantages: The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. When specified, the wire rope shall be prestretched.

These are the features that permit strand to adapt so successfully to structural applications. Bethlehem Structural Wire Rope consists zstm six strands made from zinc-coated wire with strands laid helically around a core, such as another strand or smaller wire rope.

Structural strand provides a high strength-to-weight ratio, a high modulus of elasticity and a small diameter-per-unit strength. It can be furnished with Class B weight or Class C weight zinc-coated outer wires or Class B weight or Class C weight zinc-coated wires throughout where additional corrosion protection is required.


The steel shall conform to the following tensile requirements: Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Refer to Table 1 for structural strand data.

Smaller Fittings—Many fittings manufactured for standard strand may be used with the SS, thereby offering a lower cost per unit and adding further cost reductions. Structural wire rope provides greater flexibility when compared with coarse strand constructions and is generally the structural cable of choice where bending ability is an important requirement, such as astk flemish eye ends drop terminals.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. Structural strand is used as a load-carrying tension member where great flexibility and bending are not major requirements.
