8.1 Surface Inspection
Conduct visual inspection on the surface quality.
8.2 Inspection of Overall Dimensions
8.2.1 The diameter of the steel strands shall be measured with a measuring tool with a division value of not greater than 0.02 mm. The distance between the measurement position and the end shall not be less than 300 mm.
8.2.2 The diameter of the 1  2 structured steel strands shall be measured as the Dn value shown in Figure 1; the diameter of the 1  3 structured steel strands shall be measured as the A value shown in Figure 2; the diameter of the 1  7 structured steel strands (excluding 1  7I and 1  7H structures) shall be based on the two opposite outer layer steel wires crossing the diameter direction and measured as the Dn value shown in Figure 3; the diameter of the 1  19 Warrington steel strands shall be based on the two opposite outer layer steel wires crossing the diameter direction and measured as the Dn value shown in Figure 4.
8.2.3 The diameter of the 1  19 Seale steel strands shall be measured as the diameter of the circumscribed circle of the steel strands, as the Dn value shown in Figure 5. To measure the diameter of the circumscribed circle, use a wide-mouth caliper. The width of the jaws must span at least two adjacent steel wires. The jaws respectively clamp the highest points of the upper and lower steel wires. This measured value is the diameter of the circumscribed circle of the steel strands, as shown in Figure 7.
Figure 7 -- Schematic Diagram of Circumscribed Circle Diameter Measurement of 1  19 Structured Seale Steel Strands
8.2.4 To measure the diameter of steel strands of different structures, measure three times in different directions around the circumference. The average value of the three measurements is the actual measured diameter of the steel strands.
8.3 Measurement and Calculation of Enlargement Ratio of Center Steel Wire Diameter of 1  7 Structured Steel Strands
To calculate the enlargement ratio of the center steel wire diameter of the 1  7 structured steel strands, the diameter of the six outer layer steel wires of the steel strands shall be measured first and take the average value. The difference between the diameter of the center steel wire and the average value is divided by the average value. The percentage of the calculated result is the enlargement ratio of the center steel wire diameter.
8.4 Tensile Test

The design of the clamping device shall ensure that during the test, the load is distributed along the entire clamping length, and the minimum effective clamping length shall not be less than one lay length of the steel strands. If the specimen breaks within the chuck or within 2 times the nominal diameter of the steel strands from the jaws and fails to satisfy the performance requirements of this document, this test shall be deemed as invalid, and additional samples shall be tested, until valid test data is obtained.
8.4.2 Maximum force

In order to facilitate the supply-side’s routine inspection, the force (Ft1), at which, the total extension reaches 1% of the original gauge length can also be determined. When its value complies with the Fp0.2 value specified in this document, it can be delivered, but Fp0.2 shall be determined during the arbitration test. When determining Fp0.2 and Ft1, the preload is 10% of the nominal maximum force.
8.4.4 Total elongation of maximum force
The total elongation Agt of the maximum force is determined in accordance with the stipulations of GB/T 21839. If a computer is used to collect data or an electronic tensile equipment is used, when measuring the elongation, the elongation caused by the preload on the specimen shall be added to the total elongation.

The percentage of the calculation result is the nominal weight deviation per meter. 8.7 Test of Stress Relaxation Properties

The correlation coefficient of reckoning the relaxation rate shall not be less than 0.98. If the correlation coefficient is less than 0.98, it is allowed to use 240 h of test data to reckon. If the correlation coefficient is still less than 0.98, the test shall be continued to 1,000 h. 8.8 Fatigue Test
