Abstract

Hydraulic steel structures (HSS) are key components of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers infrastructure and are subject to corrosive environments, unpredictable loadings, and extreme conditions. Corrosion can take many forms and can cause costly damage to HSS due to inadequate design of protective measures. There are numerous forms of corrosion that have a negative effect on HSS, as well as material properties that need consideration when design HSS preventive measures. Understanding corrosion and providing proper preventive measures is crucial for HSS. Proper maintenance and repair of these protection systems also play a significant part in corrosion control of HSS.
