Project Details

Project Description: 

Satisfactory performance of various materials used in bridge structures is desirable to provide durability and reduce maintenance costs in corrosive service environments.  Three studies were started in Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Coatings and Corrosion Laboratory to explore new materials and improve current materials, but were not completed.

Goals:

Complete the remaining research work for the three studies and publish TechBriefs and reports.
