The results of a test program are reported in which uniaxially restrained, air-entrained concrete prisms made with shrinkage-compensating Types P, M, and S cements were immersed in sulfate solutions after 14 days of water curing.

The 6 Missouri River dams constructed by the Corps of Engineers are in a region where the ground water has a high sulfate content. The concentration is highest at Ft. Peck, Oahe, and Big Bend. The problem was recognized at the time of construction of Ft. Peck Dam in the mid-30s, and this is perhaps the first major project in the U.S. where a sulfate reistant cement was specified. . .An up-to-date evaluation of the condition of the Ft. Peck concrete is advisable.

The Bureau of Reclamation (BR) consumated an agreement with the Office of Saline Water (OSW) to ascertain the feasiblilty of using concrete in the construction of desalination plants.

Prestressed concrete is being applied to an increasing number of important ocean structures and vessels. The assurance of long term durability, dpesite a harsh and corrosive environment, requires that careful procedures be followed.
This paper discusses the degree and rate of deterioration of plain concrete structures resulting from field observations and experimental work. Structures investigated were sea walls and wharfs which have been exposed to sea water and sea breeze for approximately 15 to 40 years.
The purpose of this research was to develop and evalute a slow cycle fatigue method of testing concrete which might relate in part ot the durability of concret subjected to cyclic loading conditions.

The developmental program for concrete-polymer materials has shown polymer-impregnated concrete to have significantly improved durability and strucutural properties aas compared with conventional concrete.
The Bureau of Reclamation's freezing and thawing and outdoor exposure tests of coated and plain concrete show pigmented epoxies to provide greatest protection against concrete deterioration while retaining a pleasing appearance.

The City of Montreal has approximatively 65,000 catch-basins, 1639 miles of concrete sidewalk and 979 miles of concrete pavement. The paper gives the history of their long term freeze-thaw durability.

In the course of performing field surveys of bridges for a bridge deck durability study, it was noted in some instances that the type of forms used to construct the decks appeared to influence deterioration and cracks. . .Observations indicate that SIP formed decks have a higher moisture content than do conventionally formed decks.
