Abstract:
Deals with the construction of about 12 miles of 3-in. reinforced concrete canal lining of trapezoidal section with an approximate bottom width of 12 ft, height ofI I ft, and side slopes of 1 1/4:1. A special feature of the construction was the first use of lining machines equipped with movable steel plates or metal-lined lank strike-off boards for placing the concrete mono-thically in short panel sections. Data are given on various phases of the construction procedure, on the methods employed for controlling the quality of the concrete, and on the comparative results obtained with continuous sprinkling and black membrane curing.
