Abstract : Troy Lock, Dam, and Powerhouse are located on the Hudson River in upstate New York (Figure 1) 156 miles from New York Harbor. Troy Lock and Dam allows entrance to the New York Barge Canal which connects to the Great Lakes. This makes Troy Lock and Dam an important link for shipping and pleasure craft in the northeast. Surface concrete of Troy Lock and Dam is the deteriorated condition (Figures 2, 3, 4, and 5). Because of this deterioration, the New York District decided in 1978 to have the Structures Laboratory of the Waterways Experiment Station (WES) evaluate the condition of Troy Lock and Dam and determine what rehabilitation should be performed.
