Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates approximately 270 navigation dams constructed of plain or reinforced concrete. The Corps of Engineers also operates more than 350 reservoir dams, most of which are either concrete gravity structures or embankment structures with accompanying attachments and appurtenances constructed of plain or reinforced concrete. Many of these structures require, or will require, significant repairs to ensure safe and efficient operations. The Repair, Evaluation, Maintenance, and Rehabilitation (REMR) Research Program was created to identify and develop effective and affordable technology for maintaining and extending the service life of existing Corps Civil Works structures. Modern engineering technology is providing procedures for performing condition surveys, consistent and quantitative condition assessment, and database management. Combined with economic analyses, these procedures afford efficient maintenance and repair (M&R) budget planning through evaluation of the current condition and comparison of various M&R alternatives based on life-cycle costs. Collectively, these procedures are called the REMR Management Systems. By using the REMR Management Systems, many of the subjective elements in the decision-making process are removed from M&R planning.
