Survey of Soviet Space Welding Technology Development
Soviet engineers clearly recognize the potential value of welding for maintenance, repair, and fabrication of structures in space. The development of this technology has followed a steady...

Epoxy Update
Epoxy-coated reinforcing steel protects against corrosion if it is used correctly. Several construction practices, such as prescribing the limits on permissible coating damage due to shipping...

Designing for Maintainability
Inspection and maintenance guidelines are unavailable for many buildings. Building owners seldom have the benefit of such information because buildings are often considered passive systems,...

Shopping for a New Bridge Coat
Total shop coating of new steel bridges appears to be the best armor against corrosion. This alternative is one of three techniques for diminishing the difficulty and expense of painting...

Low Friction and Adfreeze Coatings
Low friction and adfreeze coatings have proven to be cost effective in reducing skin friction on icebreaker hulls. Of the two coatings acceptable for this service, the 100% polyurethanes...

Biofouling Control of Water Intake Structures
Biofouling of water intakes can affect condenser performance and availability. This paper discusses four biofouling control technologies: thermal backwash, antifouling coatings, chlorination,...

Methods of Ice Control
Ice control is the practice of holding ice in place or directing its growth and movement. Methods of ice control in navigable waters including locks are presented. Ice carried downstream...

Polymer Modified Glass Fiber Reinforced Cement (PGRC) as a Protective Buffer Coating over Thin Film Anti-Corrosion Coatings

An Inelastic Constitutive Model for Fabrics

Simulation of Optical Properties of Black Chrome

Soil-Pipe Interaction of Heated Oil Pipelines
A study is presented analyzing the distress frequently encountered in buried heated oil pipelines due to the expansion and contraction producing soil-pipe interface shear and cyclic movements....

Fabric Strains Using Moire

Coated Fabrics: Biaxial Model, Experimental Results

Bilinear Model for Coated Square Fabrics
An idealized composite model of a square biaxially loaded coated fabric is proposed. The model consists of straight linearly elastic yarns embedded in a thin layer of a linearly elastic...

Downdrag on Bitumen-Coated Piles
The performance of bitumen-coated piles in a number of case histories shows that bitumen coatings can be used effectively to reduce negative skin friction on piles. The shearing behavior...

Bond of Coated Reinforcing Bars in Concrete
The bond strengths were determined for 23 epoxy-coated (10 different epoxy coatings), six polyvinyl chloride-coated (three different coating materials), and five uncoated reinforcing bars....

Proven Organic Coatings for Long Term Protection — Part II
Recent advances in coatings materials and their application make possible improved protection of structures in normal or aggressive environments. Shopcoating and field application are...

New Era in Fire Protective Coatings for Steel
Building designers have been receptive to new approaches to fireproofing steel. Among alternatives to traditional fireproofing now on the market: (1)Medium density inorganic systems such...

Proven Organic Coatings for Long Term Protection
Recent advances in coatings materials and their application make possible improved protection of structures in normal or agressive environments. Shopcoating and field application are compared....

Cement Mortar Lining of 20-Ft Diameter Steel Pipe
The art of cement mortar lining new steel pipelines, already installed, has advanced rapidly in the past 10 yrs. This advancement has led to the application of in-place mortar lining in...
