Abstract:A discussion of plant, construction procedures, and control methods used in building Norris Dam, Tennessee Valley Authority. The structure contained approximately l,000,000 cu yd of concrete. Aggregates including sand were produced in six sizes from locally available dolomite rock. A modified portland cement was used. Particular attention was given to particle shape and grading of the sand. Concrete was mixed in 3-cu yd mixers and deposited by 6-cu yd bottom dump buckets, operating from two movable tower cableways. Close laboratory control of concrete was maintained.
