The Berth 6 Terminal at Barbours Cut was showing signs of premature distress to its portland cement concrete pavements. Maersk Container Service Co, Inc, who operate at the terminal, appointed Nigel Nixon and Partners, Inc. to undertake an investigation into the condition of the paving and to establish potential remedial actions. This work included visual condition surveys, geotechnical and materials testing and non-destructive, falling weight deflectometer testing of the grounded yard, wheeled yard and gate facility.
