Steels for concrete reinforcement: Axial load fatigue testing of bars (NT MECH 014)


  • This NORDTEST method describes a procedure for fatigue testing under axial loading to obtain the fatigue strength of reinforcing steel in the fatigue regime where the strains are predominately elastic both upon initial loading and throughout the testing.


Nordtest is a trademark of Nordic cooperation in conformity assessment. The emphasis of Nordtest is to develop, promote and innovate Nordic test methods and pre-normative activity. Nordtest endeavours to remove technical barriers to trade and promotes the concept: “Approved once, accepted everywhere”.
