Strontium Isotopic Evidence for a Higher Water Table at Yucca Mountain
At Yucca Mountain, calcite occurs as open-space fillings and coatings on fractures within much of the host volcanic rocks in both the saturated and unsaturated zones. Strontium isotope...

Evaluation of a Proprietary Tape Coating Alternative for the 157 Mile Ivie Pipeline
A two part evaluation of alternative protective coating systems for the 157 mile Ivie pipeline was made. In Part I, an evaluation was made on the suitability of a proprietary tape coating...

Preventing Coating Delamination in Prestressed Concrete Pipe
This paper describes the results of experimental and analytical studies of mortar coating delamination of prestressed of concrete cylinder pipe. Coating delamination resulting from radial...

Protective Coatings to Resist Cavitation Erosion in Concrete Hydraulic Structures

Realistic Specifications for Steel Bridge Painting
Specifications play a vital role in a steel bridge painting contract. They not only can ease problems with painting construction, but can also provide a common standard for all parties...

Concrete Surface Treatments—A Selection Guide
Concrete deterioration can take many forms. The most common forms of concrete surface deterioration includes delaminations, spalling and scaling. This deterioration is usually caused by...

Impact of Fracture Coatings on the Transfer of Water Across Fracture Faces in Unsaturated Media

Energy Absorption of Failing Injection-Molded Rubber-Coated Glass/Nylon Composites

Designing for Corrosion Control
This presentation will discuss designing from several aspects: a. Designing of the item to lessen the affects of corrosion. b. Selection of non-corrosive materials in the designing process...

Fracture-Lining Minerals in the Lower Topopah Spring Tuff at Yucca Mountain
Fracture-lining minerals in the lower Topopah Spring Member of the Paintbrush Tuff at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, are being examined to characterize potential flow paths within and away from...

Dynamics of Protective Coatings to Limit Cavitation Damage
Cavitation implosions inflict a very high impact stress on turbine blades and turbine liners. One strategy for limiting the impact on the turbine components is to overlay a protective...

Bond Strength of Epoxy-Coated Reinforcement to Concrete—An Update
The results of a large-scale study to determine the effect of epoxy coating on bond strength is described. The study addresses the effects of coating thickness, deformation pattern, bar...

Influence of Epoxy Coating on Stress Transfer from Steel to Concrete
To assess the influence of epoxy coating on the bond characteristics of reinforcing bars, a series of tests was conducted to determine differences in stress transfer between coated and...

Surface Treatments for Concrete
The US Army Corps of Engineers initiated in 1984 a research program designated Repair, Evaluation, Maintenance, and Rehabilitation (REMR), one of the work units being the evaluation of...

Frazil Ice Control Using Electromechanical Cibrators and Ice-Resistant Coatings
Two methods, using electromechanical vibrators and ice-resistant coatings, were studied in a small-scale test conducted at the U. S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory...
