The report describes a field survey done to observe the extent and application of bare galvanized steel in the United States. For purposes of the analysis, the conterminous 48 states were grouped into four regions. Industrial and rural areas were considered in the study which examined galvanized steel applications of roofing, siding, gutters and flashing, transmission line towers, fencing, pole line hardware, guardrails, and storage facilities. A field survey was conducted in four cities thought to be representative of each region for visual inventory. In-house surveying was then performed using aerial photography corresponding to the areas visited and relevant land use data to calculate surface area of the observed galvanized steel. Extrapolation to entire metropolitan areas was done through the land use statistics. Estimates of galvanized steel surface in non-residential urban areas from the survey observations are 9.2x10(4) sq m for Cleveland, 53.8x10(4) sq m for Atlanta, 38.6x10(4) sq m for Dallas, and 256.8x10(4) sq m for Sacramento.
