1909.2.4 Tests of Reinforcing Bars
Samples shall be taken from bundles as delivered from the mill, with the bundles identified as to heat number and the accompanying mill certificate. One tensile test and one bend test shall be made from a sample from each 10 tons (9080 kg) or fraction thereof of each size of reinforcing steel.
Where positive identification of the heat number cannot be made or where random samples are to be taken, one series of tests shall be made from each 21/2 tons (2270 kg) or fraction thereof of each size of reinforcing steel.
Tests of reinforcing bars may be waived by the structural engineer with the approval of the Building Official for one-story buildings or non-building structures provided they are identified in the construction documents and certified mill test reports are provided to the inspector of record for each shipment of such reinforcement.
