Grates and bearing plates shall be tested for weight (mass) of zinc coating according to AASHTO M111. Bolts, nuts and washers shall be tested for weight (mass) of zinc coating according to AASHTO M232. Refer to Field determination of weight of coating for additional information concerning the testing of bolts, nuts, and washers for weight (mass) of zinc coating. All test data and calculations shall be recorded in Laboratory workbooks. Test results shall then be recorded through AASHTOWARE Project (AWP).
