Abstract:
High velocity water jet and shot-blast tests which were made to determine the effects of mix propor-tions, curing, absorptive form lining, air entrainment, and surface finish on the erosion resistance of concrete are described. Examples of erosion failures in hydraulic structures by wear and cavitation and methods of repair are included.
