|Abstract:||The slip resistance is a critical factor influencing high strength bolted joint behaviour in steel structures under repeated loading. The surface condition of the connected steel components, also known as the faying surface, controls the level of the slip resistance. Design standards, such as the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code CAN/CSA S6-06 (CSA 2006) and the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC 2010) specifications, specify desired conditions for faying surfaces and associated slip coefficients for design purposes. Currently, these standards do not address faying surface conditions that are completely metallized or that have one connected face metallized and the other face galvanized (hereafter referred to as galvanized-metallized faying surfaces), although steel bridge components are widely metallized or galvanized to provide long-term protection against wear and corrosion. This compels steel bridge fabricators to mask off all faying surfaces before metallizing, a practice that is labour-intensive, costly and time-consuming. In this study, the resistance of slip-critical joints in steel bridges with metallized and galvanized-metallized faying surfaces are characterized in the light of the CAN/CSA-S6-06 standard. The mean slip coefficient is determined from a compression and tension test regimes. These tests revealed much greater slip resistance for metallized faying surfaces than the typical uncoated blast-cleaned surface. For the metallized-galvanized surfaces, the mean slip coefficients were found to be much greater than that for galvanized surfaces and, in the majority of cases, also greater than the uncoated blast-cleaned surface. Keywords: steel bridge construction, galvanization, metallization, slip-critical bolted joints, slip resistance, design standards.|
