Corrosion of Fasteners in Wood Treated with Newer Wood Preservatives for Potential Rehabilitation of Covered Bridges

This project has three principal objectives:
1. Evaluate corrosion performance of ferrous, nonferrous, and non-metallic fasteners in wood treated with new preservatives,
specifically, ACQ, CuAz, and micronized copper quaternary (MCQ)
2. Examine the feasibility of a rapid test to evaluate corrosion of metals in contact with wood
3. Examine the role of moisture on corrosion of metals in contact with treated wood
