ACI 210R-93: Erosion of Concrete in Hydraulic Structures (Reapproved 2008)

Description

This report outlines the causes, control, maintenance, and repair of erosion in hydraulic structures. Such erosion occurs from three major causes: caviration, abrasion, and chemical attack. Design parameters, materials selection and quality,environmental factors, and other issues affecting the performance of concrete are discussed. Evidence exists to suggest that given the operating characteristics and conditions to which a hydraulic structure will be subjected, it can be designed to mitigate future erosion of the concrete. However, operational factors change or are not clearly known and hence erosion of concrete surfaces occurs and repairs must follow. This report briefly treats the subject of concrete erosion and repair and provides numerous references to detailed treatment of the subject.

This Standard was reapproved in 1998  (as referenced by NZS 3101:Part 1:2006) and then again in 2008.
