Abstract : Presented are the Proceedings of the Workshop on Assessment of the Stability of Concrete Structures on Rock. The workshop was conducted to define problems with the Corp's current stability criteria and procedures, and to identify research needs that would address these problems. The proceedings provide a summary of the papers presented and the activities, conclusions, and recommendations of five working groups. Each working group was assigned one of the following subject areas. 1. Shear strength selection procedures and the use of these parameters for evaluating the stability of existing concrete structures. 2. Foundation exploration procedures for acquiring test samples and identifying weakness in the foundation for evaluating the stability of existing concrete structures. 3. Computation of forces and methods of analysis for evaluating the stability of existing concrete structures on rock. 4. Instrumentation and monitoring procedures for the purpose of evaluating the stability of existing concrete structures on rock. 5. Procedures for selecting and selecting systems to improve stability.
