Rehabilitation work was recently completed for concrete portions of the damaged Ebeye Pier in the Marshall Islands after it was hit by a large cargo ship. Analysis showed that the original reinforced concrete deck panels had a steel ratio of 0.0092. "My concern after seeing the large amount of steel placed in the original concrete slabs was ensuring our repair would meet the under-reinforced condition required by the American Concrete Institutes code," said Lt. Cmdr. Charlie Kubic, who designed the repair.
