Abstract:
A cursory description of the slip-form construction process - its advantages and limitations. Suggests practical considerations for good results: how to maintain a uniform supply of concrete and a uniform rate of placement; how to keep the construction deck level and walls in vertical alignment; techniques of placing the concrete; and problems of detailing and placing the steel. Surface finishes are also covered, and precautions for winter concreting indicated.
