Title: The Proper Use of Concrete Gravity Chutes
Author(s): W.H. Insley and C.C. Brown
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 398-400
Abstract:The concrete gravity plant has had a very rapid development because of its undoubted economy in the time and labor cost of distributing concrete and its practically universal adaptability to all classes of concrete structures. The straight lift in a tower for the vertical distance between the mouth of the mixer and the top of the forms and then an additional lift of about one foot for every three of horizontal distance between the two before turning the concrete over to gravity to carry it across from the tower to the forms is about as near to Nature's absolute foot pound requirement as can well be devised.
