Title: Mass Concrete Research For Hoover Dam
Author(s): Byram W. Steele
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 305-317
Abstract:The advent of a mass concrete dam 726 ft high necessitated a thorough investigation of such subjects as volume change, foundation and contraction joint grouting, portland cement, mass concrete strength and mix proportions, elastic and thermal properties of mass concrete, permeability, precooling concrete ingredients versus concrete re-frigeration, action under axial, biaxial and trlaxlal loads, bond and sliding friction, shear, uplift, and durability. Of these problems, the ones of most vital importance from the construction standpoint were attacked first and solutions obtained that justi-fied the procedure actually followed.
