Description: Technical note
Introduction: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has an extensive history of building concrete-armored rubble-mound structures and currently maintains 19 structures within the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii. In general, these structures have performed well, but many have required armor layer rehabilitation (Melby and Turk 1994). A major goal of the concrete armor unit research effort is to incorporate lessons learned from existing structure surveys into experiences gained in the laboratory, and improve concrete armor unit design guidance. One area that can improve concrete armor unit performance is attention to quality control and quality assurance, especially in the composition, casting, and handling of units.
