They can also make chemical attack extremely rapid. 4. The Need for Protection of Steel in Concrete The implication of the discussion above is simply this. The exposure condition — the environment in which a structure is located — is the worst enemy of concrete and steel, enhancing cracking and damage of the concrete and destabilization of Design for Durability with Galvanized Reinforcement 37 the steel. These effects may lead to premature deterioration of the structure with resultant loss of stiffness, strength, stability and safety.

2. Protection Stage On depassivation of the zinc, corrosion commences and the galvanized layer begins to dissolve. The outer pure zinc (eta) layer of the coating dissolves first, followed more slowly by reaction of the inner zinc–iron (primarily zeta and delta) alloy layers. These alloy layers typically comprise two-thirds or more of the coating thickness (see Fig. 2) and it would appear that they can survive in concrete Galvanized Steel in Concrete: An Overview 17 for extended periods of time. This is supported by evidence from field surveys of galvanized bar in bridge decks and marine structures (as previously noted) which often show no more than 10 – 30% loss of the original coating thickness through the life of the structure and that more zinc remains on the bar surface than the specified minimum original coating thickness.
