Abstract: For much of its early history, the US Army Corps of Engineers concentrated on designing and constructing new facilities. But now the mission of the Corps is shifting from construction to maintenance of existing facilities. As part of the Repair, Evaluation, Maintenance, and Rehabilitation (REMR) program, this research focuses on the evaluation and repair of the steel sheet pile structures within the Corps' Civil Works projects. The objectives of this work were to (1) develop an inspection and rating system that uniformly and consistently describes current condition of steel sheet pile structures, and (2) develop guidelines for the maintenance and repair of these structures. This report discusses the current inspection and rating system and provides the definition of a condition index and a brief description of sheet pile distresses. A detailed description of the inspection process is included.
