USACE Engineers Evaluate Camouflet Repair Alternatives
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center
Sept. 9, 2016 | 2:43
The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center's Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory evaluates materials for camouflet repairs at the Silver Flag exercise site on Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida. In these situation where concrete slabs remain relatively intact, typical crater repair procedures such as saw cutting and debris removal are likely unnecessary. Instead, methods and materials for adequately backfilling and stabilizing camouflet subsurface voids need to be evaluated for construction and structural feasibility.
