Abstract : In-service steel sheet piling was investigated in 1959 at eight naval stations. In 1965 the piling at five of these stations was investigated again to gather further information on the corrosion rates of steel sheet piling at waterfront locations. The value of applying maintenance coatings from the mean low-water mark to the top of the piling and of using cathodic protection was reaffirmed by this second survey. (Author)
