Re: Concrete exposed to seawater

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I remember doing some research for something similar, and I found an USACE or NAVFAC doc that mentioned something like 4" clear cover for piers.  Check the UFC (Unified Facilities Criteria).  http://www.wbdg.org/ccb/browse_cat.php?o=29&c=4

Do any ACI codes or standards specifically address concrete cover requirements for concrete:
 
a. Directly exposed to seawater.
 
b. Exposed to salt laden air (coastal structures not in direct contact with seawater).
 
I am aware of some discussion in some ACI guides and commentaries and some requirements in European standards, but I am looking for "mandatory language" documents in the U.S.
