TIMBER PILINGS: MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION SUMMARY OF A PANEL DISCUSSION

The panel discussion concerned with maintenance and inspection of timber pilings attracted about 100 attendees (including ten who registered only for this event) to a lively evening session. Timber pilings are used in large numbers in bridge structures and for harbor and navigational facilities. The inspection and maintenance of these pilings, to prevent failures such as the collapse of the Coos Bay bridge in Oregon in 1977 (because of damage caused by marine borers), was the topic for discussion.
