Galvanized Steel Myths, Misconceptions & Trending Uses


Course Information

Everyone knows hot-dip galvanized (HDG) steel provides corrosion protection, but when properly specified, HDG also is used for its other advantageous engineering and architectural properties. Recent studies and applications have dispelled common misconceptions, updated engineering properties and expanded its use as an aesthetically pleasing coating.

This webcast will explore the real story regarding HDG Fasteners on the Bay Bridge, recent studies and data relating to HDG slip factor and slip critical connections, and HDG steel’s use in Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel (AESS) applications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand recent, common misconceptions with the use of HDG steel
  • Explore the real story behind HDG fastener rods used in the Bay Bridge and the potential for Hydrogen Embrittlement
  • Decipher proper HDG use in slip-critical connections based on the most-recent research studies
  • Identify best practices to maximize HDG appearance for AESS and other high-visibility projects
