Abstract:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates approximately 270 navigation lock chambers constructed of plain or reinforced concrete. Many of these structures require, or will require significant repairs to ensure safe and efficient operations. Modem engineering technology is providing procedures for performing condition surveys, consistent and quantitative conditions assessment, and data base management. Combined with economic analyses, these procedures afford efficient maintenance and repair M and R budget planning through the evaluation of current condition and the comparison of various M and R alternatives based on life cycle costs. Collectively these procedures are called the Repair, Evaluation, Maintenance and Rehabilitation REMR Management System. The LOCKWALL program documented in this manual addresses the REMR aspects of concrete navigation lock monoliths.
