This paper investigates the effect of a galvanizing coating on the fatigue strength of S355 structural steel. The aim of the present paper is to partially fill this lack of knowledge. A comparison is carried out, between hot dip galvanized fillet welded cruciform joints made by S355 structural steel and not treated welded joints characterized by the same geometry, subjected to a load cycle R = 0. Thirty four new experimental data are summarized in the present contribution, in terms of stress range Δσ and averaged strain energy density range AW in a control volume of radius R0 = 0.28 mm.
