Title: An Investigation Of The Permeability Of Mass Concrete With Particular Reference To Boulder Dam
Author(s): Arthur Ruettgers and E. N. Vidal
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 382-416
Abstract:The permeability investigation reported was made to provide data particularly applicable to the con- ditions at Boulder Dam, that is, for mass concrete exposed to a maximum hydrostatic head of over 700 ft, and made with s ecial cement and 9.in. maximum size aggregate. The paper is comprehensive and includes (I) a description of the testing apparatus and technique, (2) the test results, (3) examples of the practical application of the investi- gational data, (4) a summary of results and con- clusions, and (5) a discussion of the factors con- trolling the flow of water through concrete and the resultant corrosion.
