Title: CPN 17 - The Use of Galvanised Reinforcement in Concrete
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:The aim of this Practice Note is to provide reliable technical information on the characteristics and use of galvanised normal reinforcing steel such that decisions can be made on when and how to use galvanised reinforcement. It also provides guidelines on the specification and practices involved in its use.
In this Practice Note, the factors determining the durability of reinforced concrete are briefly considered. The nature of the galvanising treatment is clearly described and the method of galvanising reinforcing steel classified as Normal in Clause 5.2 of AS/NZS 46711. The use of galvanised reinforcing steels in reinforced concrete construction is also discussed.
