Abstract:A brief description of some of the field problems encountered in building rectangular multistory reinforced concrete tanks used for the storage or fermentation of beer. Tank drainage and plant ventilation required special formwork to provide the necessary warped or sIoped surfaces. Specified coverage and placement of reinforcement led to development and use of special precast concrete spacer blocks and metal chairs. Varying job con-ditions dictated use of both metal and plywood forma and rough surfaces required for bonding odor- and taste-free lining imposed special concrete finishing techniques.
