Long-Term Management Strategies for USS Arizona: A Submerged Cultural Resource (PDF), Report (Legacy 05-170) (PDF)

This file consists of chapters 1-4 of a report describing a project funded under numbers: 02-170, 03-170, 04-170, and 05-170. The projects primary focus was to acquire requisite data for understanding and characterizing the complex corrosion and deterioration processes affecting Arizona's hull, internally and externally. The information was then fed into a model to predict the nature and rater of structural changes resulting from corrosion.
