Abstract:

The Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory has conducted a study of the potential applications of isotopic devices and techniques within the Naval Shore Establishment. Radiation characteristics, general applications of isotopic devices, and specific problem areas are discussed. Recommendations are included for the use of surface density and moisture gages in the inspection of compacted earth, and for additional work in the determination of the thickness of in-place steel sheet piling and the thickness and density of concrete.
