Abstract:

Design, repair, or rehabilitation of structural steel elements for civil works projects may require knowledge in a multitude of specialties such as allowable stresses, finite element analysis, material selection, buckling, welding, corrosion, and fatigue. This report provides additional background, guidance, and references in many of these specialty areas to enhance the capabilities of design engineers. This report contains general considerations for structural design and repair of hydraulic steel structures on Corps of Engineers civil works projects. The types of structures covered by this report include gates of all types, bulkheads, trash racks, and appurtenances for these structures, such as embedments and bearings. The topics addressed in this report include material selection, minimum sizes, plate design requirements, connection design, welding, fabrication nondestructive testing methods, corrosion protection, and performance of hydraulic steel structures. Coverage of these topics is not comprehensive it is more a collection of knowledge and experiences based on design and operation of Corps of Engineers projects. Allowable stress design, Fabrication, Material selection, Alloy elements,
