Section Meeting - October 18th
Posted on 1/24/2017


We will have our next Section meeting on October 18th. Details for the meeting are provided below. Please plan to attend and we look forward to seeing you there! 


Date: Thursday, October 18, 2018

Time: 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM 

Location: The County Line on the Hill, 6500 W. Bee Cave Rd, 512-327-1742 

Presenter: John Glass with Amcorr Products & Services, Inc.

Presentation: Combating Corrosion of the Support Rods & Fasteners of the San Francisco Bay Bridge. The newly constructed San Francisco Bay Bridge connecting Oakland to San Francisco made the news prior to opening when it was determined that a portion of the support rods were experiencing fatigue and showing signs of premature failure. One of the methods of combating this issue was to use custom sized bolt caps in conjunction with a viscous-elastic semi-solid compound to prevent moisture penetration between the support rod and concrete at the bolting area of the rods. This presentation will discuss the challenges, overall objective, and unique characteristics of the viscous-elastic semi-solid compound and bolt cap system to describe how the system would mitigate moisture penetration at the concrete and rod interface.
