Title: Making And Placing Concrete Revetment Mat, Vicksburg Engineer District
Author(s): Morris W. Gilland
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 799-830
Abstract:Results indicate that in all but special situations the concrete revetment mat is equal to and cheaper than the willow mat and can be made and placed more rapidly. Manufacture, equipment, and placing of the articulated type of reinforced concrete mat are de- scribed. The normal sequence of placing operations is clearing of the banks, grading, placement of sub- aqueous mat and upper bank paving. Upper bank paving consists of monolithic reinforced co n c ret e standard reinforced concrete mat sections, concrete blocks, or riprap stone.
