Description: Technical note
PURPOSE: The deterioration of elements of steel hydraulic structures (SHS) on our nation’s lock system is caused by combined effects of several complex phenomena: corrosion, cracking and fatigue, impact, and overloads. This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note presents examples of deterioration and a method for predicting future deterioration based on current conditions. In a companion Technical Note(Riveros and Arredondo 2010), the procedure for generating the deterioration rate curves are presented and explained with practical examples.
