About the research

The objectives of this project were as follows:

  • Gather information on the use/acceptance of galvanized reinforcing steel by the national and international engineering community
  • Install and monitor corrosion monitoring sensors in a Buchanan County, Iowa demonstration bridge
  • Conduct laboratory testing to study bond and development length of galvanized reinforcing bars
