There are precautions provided in ASTM A/AM that should be considered to prevent embrittlement, as well as selecting steels with appropriate. Practice ASTM A provides guidance on safeguarding against warpage and be stress relieved per the guidelines provided within ASTM A, Section 6.

The design and fabrication of the product to be galvanized are the responsibilities of the designer and the fabricator.

ASTM A143/A143M – 07(2014)

Practice ASTM A provides guidance on safeguarding against warpage and distortion for optimum hot-dip galvanizing and shall be complied with in both design and fabrication. Steel invariably contains internal stresses induced at the mill from rolling operations used to bring structures, plate, and sheet to the final thickness. Oftentimes sheet or plate can be returned to a flattened state using a jig or by weighing the product down on a flat surface during the cool-down.

After galvanizing, these products should be a14 cooled instead of quenched to minimize induced stress from the cooling cycle. Where excessive cold working or tight bend radii cannot be avoided, the product should be stress relieved per the guidelines provided within ASTM A, Section 6.

Welding results in significant residual stress in small areas of an assembly due to the extreme temperature differences experienced. All efforts should be made to keep the stresses in the construction as low as possible right from the beginning to enable the steel to absorb the internal stresses completely. The overall amount of welding can be atsm by using bolted connections or performing assembly after hot-dip galvanizing.

Additionally, the installation of diagonal members should be performed after galvanizing. Where welding before galvanizing cannot be avoided, the internal stresses in the connections can be minimized by avoiding joint designs or weld lengths which are greater than statically required, and by placing welds near to and symmetrically around the neutral axis – aligning welds so that shrinkage and opposing forces are balanced rather than all pulling in the same direction.

Symmetrical sections such as I-beams and tubing will be less likely to distort than asymmetrical pieces camber beams, channels, tees, custom beams, girders because the thermal expansion forces above and below the natural axes balance each other. Furthermore, cylindrical structures are less likely to warp or distort than rectangular or elliptical ones.

Zstm symmetrically rolled sections instead of angle or channel frames. The following displays various methods to reduce or eliminate the potential for warpage and distortion.

When two steels of different thicknesses are assembled and brought up to galvanizing temperature, the thinner steel heats up and expands more quickly than the thicker steel. Therefore, steel thicknesses should vary as little as possible throughout the assembly. Wherever possible, galvanize thick and thin portions separately s143 join them after galvanizing.
