Abstract:

Presented in this report are the results of a study to determine what materials and methods can be economically used in sheet-steel bulkhead installation, maintenance, and repair. Several materials and methods are investigated to determine if their use will aid in extending bulkhead life. Mathematical models of the cost of application of the more promising systems are compared with the cost of a carbon steel bulkhead. Eight systems that appear to be cost effective are examined in detail. The most favorable conditions for use of these systems are discussed, particularly in reference to bulkhead maintenance and repair work that was concurrently conducted at the Naval Air Station, New York.
