Abstract:

This report presents the results of a study of the corrosion resistance and strength of alternate fabric materials for use in articulated concrete revetment mattresses to be placed on the lower banks of the Mississippi River. Three groups of materials-stainless steels, bimetallics, and organically coated low-carbon steels-were evaluated based on short-term electrochemical laboratory tests, laboratory sensitization evaluations, and exposures of up to approximately 4 years in freshwater and 15 months in brackish water.
