Title: Fifteen Years of Slip-Form Paving

Abstract:Traces the development of slip-form concrete paving in the United States. Covers the period since the first half-mile project was built in Iowa in 1949 through the 1963 construction season when several hundred miles of paving were built with slip-form pavers. The early developmental machines are described and the newer improved and electronically controlled slip-form pavers which are now being used to build high-speed turnpikes, expressways, and interstate highways as well as light traffic secondary roads are also discussed. The principles of slip-form paving are described, the re-quirements for adequate subbase preparation are discussed and some of the important considerations for proper mix proportioning are outlined. Illustrations of slip-form pavers for a wide variety of projects, which demonstrate the versa-tility of this equipment, are presented. Offers some of the data to date which prove the excellent riding qualities which can be obtained through the use of slip-form construction.
