Abstract:

The Concrete Laboratory at this facility contracted to prepare an engineering condition survey and structural investigation for Montgomery Locks and Dam, Ohio River. There is general spalling, leaching, and cracking of the concrete surfaces of Montgomery Locks and Dam. The crack survey implies that a majority of the cracking in the lock walls is caused by barge impact. From the deteriorated condition of the surface of the lock monoliths, it is evident that some action must be initiated. Since corrective action is needed, a feasibility study should be made to determine what action is necessary which will provide the most economical and adequate lock usage over a period of 30 to 50 years.
