Abstract:

The objective of this report is to review existing specifications and drawings for Middle East construction and to evaluate corrosion and coatings problems specific to the Oman Military Construction Program at Masirah Island, Oman. This work will form the basis for recommending additions and changes to the specifications and drawings, which would apply to all similar environments. The review included 1 evaluation of atmospheric, underground, and seawater corrosivity at Masirah Island 2 evaluation of corrosion control cathodic protection, material selection and coatings systems that have been specified for facilities components 3 consideration of additional or alternative corrosion control measures or coatings needed since most of the current construction has been completed or is near completion and 4 recommendations to include lessons learned from previous Corps of Engineers construction work in Saudi Arabia. The report is divided into two major sections 1 recommendations and comments on the specifications and drawings for the FY81 and FY82 program and 2 recommendations and comments on the specifications and drawings for the FY83 program. Each major section is subdivided into three basic parts 1 items requiring immediate attention, 2 items to consider for future construction and maintenance needs, and 3 suggestions for the maintenance or rehabilitation of deteriorating items or structures already in place.
