Environmental Suitability of Weathering Steel Structures in Florida - Materials Selection, Phase 2

The purpose of the project is to obtain data in support of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) guidelines on the appropriate use of weathering steel for bridges and other structures. The objectives are to: (1) collect pertinent information from literature review, consultations, databases and other resources; (2) identify and establish monitoring sites for data acquisition via sensors and corrosion specimens; (3) develop monitoring methods that simplify site characterization and improve data quality; and (4) provide basis for validation or refinement of FDOT guidelines for weathering steel use.
