Title: The Efficiency Cost of Concrete for the Preservation of Piles Exposed to Sea Water
Author(s): C.C. Horton
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 169-171
Abstract:It has long been the aim of engineers and builders to find some method of treating or protecting wooden piles or other wood structures from the destructive attack of marine borers, of which the Teredo and the Limnoria are the chief representatives. Many methods have been tried, and success more or less marked has attended some of them, the prinicpal methods being the chemical treatement of the wood fiber and the mechanical protection of the pile or timber by a protective covering of metal, treated wood or concrete. However, we are only interested in the application of concrete or cement and will pass over the other methods with but brief mention.
