In this technical note, a number of common problems were presented that plague coatings and create premature failure that leads to corrosion on the structure. Also, a variety of guidelines, inspection methods, and guide specifications were presented under which coatings are selected and applied. Keeping this knowledge in mind allows the needs and constraints of coating experts and design engineers to be addressed, and the effectiveness of corrosion prevention and control practices across the Corps to be improved. The authors also envision this knowledge serving other agencies, organizations, installations, and communities throughout the Nation.
