There are precautions provided in ASTM A/AM that should be considered to prevent embrittlement, as well as selecting steels with appropriate. Practice ASTM A provides guidance on safeguarding against warpage and be stress relieved per the guidelines provided within ASTM A, Section 6. ASTM A / AM Standard Practice for Safeguarding Against Embrittlement of Hot-Dip Galvanized Structural Steel Products and Procedure.

The Eng-Tips staff will check this out a1433 take appropriate action. Leave this field blank. This test method deals with the standard procedures for establishing the relative bond strength of steel reinforcing bars in concrete using beam-end specimens.
LME grade, special high grade, high grade, intermediate grade, and prime western grade. Where history has shown that for specific steels, processes and galvanizing procedures have been satisfactory, this history will serve as an indication that no embrittlement problem is to be expected for those steels, processes, and galvanizing procedures. LME astj, special high grade, high grade, intermediate grade, and prime western grade.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The material categories covered in the specification include structural steel and plate, strips and a413, pipes and tubing, and wires. The requirements for finish, appearance, and wstm are identical to those in the other main standards.
Standard Specification for Zinc. However, there are a few additional requirements for galvanized rebar.
Heat analysis shall be used to determine the percentage of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, vanadium, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, columbium, and copper for the required chemical composition. Embrittlement is not a common occurrence, however, and this discussion does not imply that galvanizing increases embrittlement where good fabricating and galvanizing procedures are employed.
Oftentimes sheet or plate can be returned to a flattened state using a jig or by weighing the product down on a flat surface during the cool-down. Furthermore, cylindrical structures are less likely to warp or distort than rectangular or elliptical ones.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. 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. Where welding before galvanizing cannot be avoided, the internal stresses in the connections can be minimized by avoiding joint designs or weld lengths which are greater than statically required, and by placing welds near to and symmetrically around the neutral axis – aligning welds so that shrinkage and opposing forces are balanced rather than all pulling in the same direction.
Where history has shown that for specific steels, processes and galvanizing procedures have been satisfactory, this history will serve as an indication that no embrittlement problem is to be expected for those steels, processes, and galvanizing procedures. Inch-pounds and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents. Embrittlement of steel shapes, steel castings, threaded articles, and hardware items shall be tested using a bend testa universal testing machine, or by means of a press with the load applied slowly, until fracture of the galvanized test specimen occurs.
Conditions of fabrication may induce a susceptibility to embrittlement in certain steels that can be accelerated by galvanizing. A second type asym embrittlement, hydrogen embrittlement, is recognized when stresses are applied to the steel in use. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. I’m reading through stacks of specs for a project we’re bidding and in the galvanizing spec one of the many lines says that ASTM A shall govern.
Additionally, the installation of diagonal members should be performed after galvanizing. 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 is the responsibility of the designer and fabricator to ensure the product has been properly designed and built before the hot-dip galvanizing process supporting specifications.
I even bounced the client’s galvanizing spec off a galvanizer and he said everything looked copasetic. Other materials that can be galvanized include continuous cast slabs, steel or iron castings, and wrought iron. Conditions of fabrication may induce a susceptibility to embrittlement in certain steels that aetm be accelerated by galvanizing. Inch-pounds and SI aastm are not necessarily exact equivalents. This specification covers rolled steel structural shapes for use in building framing or bridges, or for general structural purposes.
Our parts that get galvanized would be handrail, ladders, and platforms. That’s a standard for safeguarding against embrittlement of hot-dip galvanized steel.
This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and dimensional requirements for eight grades Grades 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.
Fabrications can have more than one material category, such as a frame assembly. Types of embrittlement commonly encountered with galvanized steel are related to aging phenomena, cold working, and absorption of hydrogen.
When two steels of different thicknesses are assembled and brought up to galvanizing temperature, the thinner steel heats up and expands asfm quickly than the thicker steel. The specification requirements for coating thickness only contain minimums, there is no maximum coating thickness limitation in the specification.
