Corrosion Control of Weathering Steel Bridges


Bare exposed weathering steel is an economical alternative to ordinary painted steel if the weathering steel develops a protective oxide coating, meaning that the bridge need not be painted during its service life. To ensure satisfactory corrosion performance, engineers should follow the guidelines for the use of weathering steel in bridges described in this paper.
