Minimize Thick and Thin Material in the Same Assembly 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. The overall amount of welding can be minimized by using bolted connections or performing assembly after hot-dip galvanizing.
Asymmetrical Design Symmetrical sections such as I-beams and tubing will s384 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.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Furthermore, cylindrical structures are less likely to warp or distort than rectangular or elliptical a84. Welding results in significant residual stress in small areas of an assembly due to the extreme temperature differences experienced. Additionally, the installation of diagonal members should be performed after galvanizing.

The design and fabrication of the product to be galvanized are the responsibilities of the designer and the fabricator. After galvanizing, these products should be air cooled instead of quenched to minimize induced stress from the cooling cycle. When two steels of different thicknesses are assembled and brought up a834 galvanizing temperature, the thinner steel heats up and expands more quickly than the thicker steel. Optimize Welding Before Hot-Dip Galvanizing Welding results in significant residual stress in small areas of an assembly due to the extreme temperature differences experienced.
Steel invariably contains internal stresses induced at the mill from rolling operations used to bring structures, plate, and sheet to the final thickness.
ASTM A Recommendations | American Galvanizer’s Association
This specification deals with safeguarding against warpage and distortion during hot-dip galvanizing of steel assemblies. 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 w384 below the natural axes balance each other.
Wherever possible, galvanize thick and thin portions separately and join them after galvanizing. The following can cause warpage and distortion: 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.
Suggested corrections for panel fabrication are detailed. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
Common distorted a84 warped members of assemblies are sheets or plates assembled xstm welding or riveting. Avoid Susceptible Thin Sheet Steels Steel invariably contains internal stresses induced at the mill from rolling operations used to bring structures, plate, and sheet to the final thickness. Where welding before galvanizing cannot a3884 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.
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. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
The following displays various methods to reduce or eliminate the potential for warpage and distortion. Inch pounds and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents.

ASTM A384 Recommendations
Where excessive cold working or tight bend radii cannot be avoided, the product should be stress relieved per the guidelines provided a34 ASTM A, Section 6. Within the text of this specification and where appropriate, SI units are shown in parentheses. 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. Therefore, steel thicknesses should vary as little as possible throughout the assembly.
