Project 1a: Structural Steel Coating for Corrosion Mitigation - UMC

Evaluation of Coating System Performance in Missouri Task 1 of the proposed research consists of a field evaluation of the existing coating systems in Missouri to determine the past and current performance of coating systems utilized in the State. The steel coating systems and procedures being utilized by other State DOTs will be evaluated with respect to current practices to identify areas to be examined for enhancing current practices and potential cost impacts. A consistent and quantitative method for characterizing the condition and performance of a coating in place would be defined based on experience in other States, standards and needs such that a systematic study of coating performance in Missouri can be conducted. The field performance survey will document and correlate factors such as environment, location and extent of coating failure/corrosion, surface preparation procedures, etc.
