Abstract: Demand for new construction of civil works projects is frequently overridden by the need to maintain existing projects. Many existing civil works structures are nearing the end of their design life, yet service to the public must be maintained. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Repair, Evaluation, Maintenance, and Rehabilitation (REMR) program was designed to focus attention on maintenance and to record and build baseline data to monitor deterioration rates of these structures. This REMR project addressed equipment used to operate lock, valve, and dam structures, which include assemblies such as: exposed gear assemblies, enclosed gear assemblies, gear rack assemblies, strut arm assemblies, rocker arm assemblies, cable assemblies, chain assemblies, hydraulic cylinder assemblies, and coupling assemblies. Not included in this evaluation of operating equipment are hydraulic motors, pumps, hoses, or valves, limit switches, brakes, electric wiring, and electric motors.
