Hot-Dip Galvanizing of Steel Structurescontains practical information that is useful for both researchers in hot-dip galvanizing and engineers, designers, and inspectors. The book draws from the empirical experience and research of the authors, complementing the current state of knowledge of morphological variations of the coating and causes of coating delamination.

The book includes chapters devoted to qualitative tests of the coating, and to methods of making corrections. A section describing the principle of protecting steel against corrosion through zinc coating is also provided, along with an extensive chapter on the principles of good design for hot-dip galvanizing. The chapter related to the safety of hot-dip galvanized steel structures offers a new hypothesis about the mechanism of nucleation of LMAC cracks during hot-dip galvanizing, thus enriching the knowledge regarding this phenomenon.

  • Provides practical information on hot-dip galvanizing from a scientific-disciplinary perspective, including coverage of design principles, reliability of galvanized structures, and legal aspects
  • Features chapters devoted to qualitative assessments of the surface treatment and methods for correcting problems
  • Includes discussion of hot-dip galvanizing with regard to environmental aspects and sustainable development
Vlastimil Kuklik has worked in the field of hot-dip galvanizing at the METALEUROP S.A., the ZINKPOWER Kopf Gruppe and the WIEGEL GROUP. He carries out professional quality assessment of zinc coatings (as a Corrosion Engineer) and he is an active functionary of the Czech and Slovak Galvanizers Association, where he organizes and conduct...
