HS20 IS A STANDARD TRUCK-TRAILER LOAD COVERED BY AASHTO. THIS IS THE LOAD
YOU MUST CONSIDER IF THE MEMBER IS SUBJECTED TO VEHICULAR LOADS. NO, I DON'T
THINK YOU NEED TO REDUCE THE ALLOWABLE LOAD FOR THE STEEL JUST BECAUSE ITS
GALAVANIZED. GALVANIZATION, AS YOU KNOW INHIBITS CORROSION WITHOUT IMPAIRING
