BOLTED GALVANIZED BRIDGES-ENGINEERING ACCEPTANCE NEAR

RESEARCH INTO THE STRENGTH OF BOLTED JOINTS IN GALVANIZED STRUCTURES SUBJECTED TO DYNAMIC LOADING, HAS BEEN UNDER WAY SINCE 1964 AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS. RESULTS SHOW THAT GALVANIZED STEEL CONNECTIONS ATTAIN FATIGUE STRENGTHS EQUIVALENT TO THOSE OF UNGALVANIZED STEEL. SLIP BEHAVIOR OF GALVANIZED JOINTS CAN BE IMPROVED BY PREASSEMBLY TREATMENT OF THE CONTACT SURFACES. IT WAS FOUND, IN ADDITION, THAT GALVANIZED HIGH-STRENGTH BOLTS, NUTS AND WASHERS CAN BE INSTALLED USING CONVENTIONAL TECHNIQUES AS LONG AS A SUITABLE LUBRICANT IS USED. /AUTHOR/
