RECENT RESEARCH ON GALVANIZED STEEL FOR REINFORCEMENT OF CONCRETE

Data are presented which show that galvanized rebar (reinforcing rod) is superior to untreated steel. Through extensive testing and laboratory experimentation, this paper provides data to resolve the question of whether or not there is an improvement in galvanized rebar's corrosion resistance over unprotected steel. Tests were performed on bridge structures ranging in age from 3 to 23 years.
