This test method describes procedures for determining the bond of seven-wire steel prestressing strand. The bond determined by this test method is stated as the tensile force required to pull the strand through the cured mortar in a cylindrical steel casing. The result of the test is the tensile force measured on the loaded-end of the strand corresponding to a movement of 0.1 inch (2.5 mm) at the free-end of the strand.
