    Desk Reference on Fastener Corrosion Created for Engineers

    Description

    This design guide summarizes recent research on the corrosion of metals in treated wood, presents design strategies to minimize corrosion of metals in contact with treated wood, and is targeted toward engineers, architects, builders, and homeowners. The guide is organized as a “question and answer” document. While the questions are arranged in a logical order, each question and answer are self-contained. Special efforts have been made to provide a comprehensive bibliography to direct the reader to further information on each question. The document was created to give practical “hands-on” information for corrosion in treated wood.
