ASTM F1554
Scope

Quick Links

The ASTM F1554 specification was introduced in 1994 and covers anchor bolts
Anchor Rods
designed to anchor structural supports to concrete foundations. F1554 anchor bolts
ASTM A449
can take the form of either headed bolts, straight rods, or bent anchor bolts. The
Strength by Grade
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 and a weldable grade 55
can be substituted for grade 36 at the supplier’s option. Color coding on the end 36 blue, 55 yellow, and 105 red – helps facilitate easy identification in the field. Permanent manufacturer and grade
marking is allowed under the S2 supplementary requirements.
Applications for F1554 anchor bolts include columns in structural steel framed buildings, traffic signal and street lighting
poles, and overhead highway sign structures to name just a few.
