Abstract:

Preliminary Information is given for corrosion mitigation techniques that can be applied to U.S. Army construction in the Middle East. The environment in these countries is unique--desert sands, high winds, and warm, salt-laden air from the surrounding sea--allowing even the most durable materials to corrode. The current Saudi Oriented Guide Specifications were utilized as a basis from which recommendations were made to extend facility lifetime through application of state-of-the-art corrosion mitigation techniques.
