Contamination of Weathering Steel during Construction Grant uri icon



  • The objective of this project was to provide guidance to ITD inspectors for judging the acceptability condition of steel faying surfaces. This would include guidelines to determine when the accumulation of contaminates on the faying surface has reached objectionable levels, and appropriate methods for removing contaminates from faying surfaces. These guidelines and methods could be incorporated into the ITD specifications.
