The manufacture and production of large diameter concrete pipe used on the San Diego Aqueduct for transporting water in rough mountainous country are described with emphasis on the control and amount of concrete involved. Use of overhead cranes for all pipe handling, close control of vibration, use of the largest practical size of aggregate with a lower cement factor, and a reduced amount of entrained air contributed to the production of excellent pipe.
