Abstract:
This paper tells of prospecting for materials at 30 deg below under 4 ft of snow - how those materials were sampled, chosen, transported, heated, proportioned; how concrete was mixed, conveyed, deposited, protected. Describes the use of a large aggregate with a big gap in sizes - to prevent raveling in stock-piles and bins, harshness and segregation after mixing and placing of a stiff mix with vibrators. Other construction operations are described.
