Data and Report from S&T Project Number 1885: Collaborative Studies of Hydraulic Concrete Surfaces to Reduce Concrete Damage for Water Resource Structures

Cavitation and erosion damage to concrete hydraulic surfaces such as spillways and stilling basins are a problem for facilities operated by the Brazilian Government and Reclamation. A collaboration was begun in 2018 between FURNAS in Brazil and Reclamation to study the complex relationships between concrete properties and hydraulic conditions that induce damage. The aim of this study is to improve guidance for concrete design and repair procedures.
