ASTM F1554

Scope

The ASTM F1554 specification was introduced in 1994 and covers anchor bolts designed to anchor structural supports to concrete foundations. F1554 anchor bolts can take the form of either headed bolts, straight rods, or bent anchor bolts. The three grades 36, 55, and 105 designate the minimum yield strength (ksi) of the anchor bolt. The bolts can be either cut or roll threaded.

Grades

F1554 Grade 36

Low carbon, 36 ksi yield steel anchor bolts

F1554 Grade 55

High strength, low alloy, 55 ksi yield steel anchor bolts

F1554 Grade 105

Alloy, heat treated, high strength 105 ksi yield steel anchor bolts
