Abstract:
Two types of slip-forms for placing concrete lining in irrigation canals are described. One type, which rides directly on the previously prepared subgrade, is a recent development for use primarily in small canals and farm ditches. Both types of equipment are now in wide use and have effectively reduced the cost of lining operations, fufilling an urgent need for the conservation of water in the western states.
