Hot-Dip Galvanizing of Steel Structures contains practical information that is useful for both researchers in hot-dip galvanizing and engineers, designers, and inspectors. The book draws from the empirical experience and research of the authors, complementing the current state of knowledge of morphological variations of the coating and causes of coating delamination.

The book includes chapters devoted to qualitative tests of the coating, and to methods of making corrections. A section describing the principle of protecting steel against corrosion through zinc coating is also provided, along with an extensive chapter on the principles of good design for hot-dip galvanizing. The chapter related to the safety of hot-dip galvanized steel structures offers a new hypothesis about the mechanism of nucleation of LMAC cracks during hot-dip galvanizing, thus enriching the knowledge regarding this phenomenon.
