Abstract:

The objective of this study is to evaluate candidate wire fabric materials as alternatives to Copperweld and AISI 301 stainless steel in articulated concrete revetment mattresses. This will increase the number of materials which can perform satisfactorily as wire fabric, increase the number of wire fabric suppliers, and reduce the cost. This report is limited to wire fabric materials used in articulated concrete mats placed in fresh water on the Mississippi River above New Orleans.
