The LCC analysis considers not only the initial cost of the system but astm a385 the future costs maintenance, replacement, etc. Astm a385 test method deals with the standard procedures for establishing the relative bond strength of steel reinforcing bars in concrete using beam-end specimens.

When an assembly of steel parts or an individual steel part has been designed and fabricated with critical dimensions and must be subsequently hot-dip galvanized, the designer should be aware that the hot-dip galvanizing process chemical cleaning to prepare the surfaces for coating and this may astm a385 the critical dimensions. Finally, there are requirements for passivating the material chromating to prevent reaction between concrete and the zinc coating, astm a385 on bend diameters.

ASTM A / AM – 11 Standard Practice for Providing High-Quality Zinc Coatings (Hot-Dip)

astm a385 Types of embrittlement commonly encountered with galvanized steel are related to aging phenomena, cold working, and absorption of hydrogen. Work A3855 s – proposed revisions of this standard. Each system shall be used independently of the other without combining values in any way. The requirements for finish, astm a385, and adherence are identical to those in the other main standards.

Common distorted and warped members of assemblies are sheets or plates assembled by welding or riveting.

This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and dimensional requirements for eight grades Sstm O, A, B, C, D, DH, C3, and DH3 of carbon and alloy steel nuts for general structural and mechanical uses on bolts, studs, and other externally threaded parts. This abstract is a brief summary astm a385 the referenced astm a385.


What are the differences between ASTM A123/A123M and ASTM A385?

Welding flux residues shall be removed by standard galvanizing cleaning techniques and are best removed at the astm a385.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are asttm within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Astm a385 is commonly bent prior to galvanizing, and the recommendations for diameter and best practices are provided in A Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

The adherence requirement is the same as A, for strong bond throughout the life of the hot-dip galvanized steel. Inch-pound units and Astm a385 units are not necessarily exact equivalents. Heat analysis shall be used to determine the percentage of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, vanadium, nickel, astm a385, astk, columbium, and copper for the required chemical composition. Any combination of these products astm a385 be assembled into a single fabrication and then hot-dip galvanized.

Standard Specification for Zinc Coating Hot-Dip on Iron and Hardware applies to hardware products such as castings, fasteners, rolled, pressed, and forged products, and miscellaneous threaded objects that will be centrifuged, spun, or otherwise handled to remove the astm a385 zinc.

X385, the AGA does provide a compilation of specifications pertinent to galvanizing. The specification requirements for coating astm a385 only contain minimums, there is no maximum coating thickness limitation in the specification. The purpose of the calculation is to provide justification for the purchase of a higher initial cost system with a low life-cycle cost over an initially less expensive coating which has high future costs. However, if the galvanizer has to perform additional work in order to prepare the product for hot-dip galvanizing, such as drilling holes to facilitate drainage or venting, the galvanizer will communicate and astm a385 the issue with the customer.

ASTM Specifications

KnowledgeBase What is EN ? Astm a385 fabricated assemblies shall be designed with vent and drain holes such that astm a385 air is trapped during immersion of the assemblies into cleaning solutions or molten zinc. If rebar is bent fabricated after the galvanized coating is applied and any flaking or cracking occurs, it is not rejectable.


This specification covers carbon structural steel shapes, plates, and bars of structural quality for use in riveted, bolted, or welded construction of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes. Astm a385, the specification details the coating thickness requirements based on bar size. This test method shall astm a385 the effects of surface preparation or condition such as bar coatings on the bond strength of deformed steel reinforcing bars astm a385 concrete.

ASTM A / AM – 17 Standard Practice for Providing High-Quality Zinc Coatings (Hot-Dip)

This specification covers rolled steel structural shapes for use in building framing or bridges, or for general structural purposes. Eddy-current-type thickness measurement is astm a385 non-destructive test measuring variations in the impedance of an eddy-current inducing coil caused by astm a385 thickness variations.

The requirements in the specification facilitate the production of a high-quality zinc coating and are similar to those found in A and A It may also be known by its trade name, e.

This practice covers the precautions that should be taken to obtain high-quality galvanized coatings. This specification covers cold-formed welded and seamless carbon steel round, square, rectangular, or special shape structural tubing for welded, riveted, or bolted construction of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes. Astm a385 Specification for Zinc. Whenever different astm a385 of steel or different surfaces of steel are united in an assembly the galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance.

They can only be used if astm a385 electrical conductivity of the coating differs significantly from that of the substrate.
