PROTECTION OF PILE CUT-OFFS-PROTECTION OF PILING AGAINST MARINE ORGANISMS BY MEANS OTHER THAN BY PRESERVATIVES

Part one of this paper discusses protection of pile cut offs. Several systems of epoxy resins were tried. General purpose adhesive with glass fabric was the most successful. Part two discusses the use of agents other than preservatives to protect pilings against marine organisms. Concrete jackets, copper-nickel sheeting, and polyvinyl chloride sheeting were the three methods employed. Difficulty in removing the concrete and the copper-nickel sheeting for inspection were the large disadvantages of these means. Polyvinyl chloride is subject to mechanical damage. It is recommended that this assignment be discontinued until there are further developments.
