Concrete Placement in Seawater

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What is the recommended practice to pour concrete when the reinforced
concrete structure is partly submerged in seawater ?  Does the steel
necessarily need a special coating (epoxy, plastic, etc.) as protection
against corrosion ?  Is it acceptable to just pur the concrete mix and
let it displace the salty water ? 
I will appreciate your comments on this subject.
Thank you
