Abstract:

The Waterways Experiment Station is not concerned primarily with the development of structural materials, but is engaged in research in support of the Corps of Engineers civil works responsibilities involving navigation and flood control and military projects including protective construction and mobility of the Army. As part of these programs of investigation, the limitations of available materials are determined, and the development and improvement of materials to support specialized construction are initiated. Current areas of research include special-purpose concrete, soil stabilization, flexible pavements, portable landing mats and membranes, and materials for protective construction.
