Abstract:
Vibration compaction is one of the important advancements in concrete technology. There yet remains, however, something to be learned about the fundamentals of vibration and the characteristics of vibrators to make more efficient use of this method for compacting concrete. A description and classification is given of the various vibrators in use together with some discussion of their characteristics and the type of work for which they are adapted.
